Ruh Roh Ratings and Other Housewife News by NoMoreDrama

Good News / Bad News for Bravo with the Ratings this week.  On the New Jersey side of the river – ratings were up for Part 2 of the Reunion.  Somehow that doesn’t surprise me – but I have a feeling people will be tuning out for Part 3.  Part 2 brought in over 3.6 million viewers – a new season high.  News wasn’t as good for New York.  Ratings slipped to 1.7 million viewers for Part 1 of the New York reunion.  There is a website http://www.bravoratings.com that reports ratings and a little writeup for Bravo shows.  On this website the author (cough Simon allegedly) points out that the ratings were worse than those for Part 2 of the Reunion of Season 4 of the Real  Housewives of New York – you know – the episode that brought in such low ratings that Andy decided to fire Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and someone else. Twitter and blogs are lit up with talk about Jill Zarin’s return to Watch What Happens Live next Monday, and what that might signify in the long run.  I shared a twitter exchange with Simon van Kempen on a possible Alex McCord appearance on Watch What Happens Live.  Here’s how it went (please excuse my not being able to spell WWHL in a morning tweet – I use this excuse a lot – but I hadn’t had my coffee yet):

I followed up with:

______________

Meanwhile …. on the New Jersey side of things – Rabblerouser was having a conversation with Melissa Gorga:

Here’s what I think.  Even if Tree did say it – Melissa shouldn’t have repeated it.  The one that stands to be hurt the most with this exchange Antonia.  Melissa just confirmed that the magazine didn’t misquote her.  She needs to fire her PR team.

Remember the 20/20 story on Brooks Ayers (Vicki’s boyfriend – possibly ex-boyfriend) that exposed him as a dead beat dad?  ABC has issued a partial retraction / clarification after Brooks threatened to sue.  The statement:

This is a follow-up to a 20/20 report broadcast June 29, 2012 concerning Brooks Ayers of “Real Housewives of Orange County.” The report said, among other things, that Ayers had left his former girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite with unpaid medical bills relating to the birth of their son Joey in December 2008, that Ayers had not visited or communicated with Joey since he was 5 or 6 months old, and that Catanzarite had been unable to locate Ayers until he was first referred to on “Real Housewives” in 2011. We want to clarify that Ayers’ insurance paid for most of Joey’s medical expenses arising from the birth, although not Catanzarite’s; that Ayers provided rent money and certain other expenses to Catanzarite for a time after Joey was born; and that Ayers saw Joey a number of times after their break-up in May 2009, the last being July or August 2010 when Joey was 19 or 20 months old. We also wanted to clarify that Ayers and Catanzarite have communicated periodically since that time, and that when Catanzarite was in California in January 2012, she met with Ayers and his girlfriend. In a statement to ABC, Ayers says that he “hopes to resolve his disputes with Nicolette soon.”

He still doesn’t sound like much of a catch.

Cast Blog – Real Housewives of Miami – by Idon’tBelieveinUnicorns

Adriana DeMoura I didn’t even realize the blog I summarized for Adriana DeMoura was from the week I missed, not this last episode.  Again, she doesn’t say much.  She talked about how upset she was at Karent’s behavior when she took her to the exhibit… that’s about it.  Nothing surprising except the following did pique my curiosity: On a lighter note I’m thrilled to let you know about my song, Feel the Rush, which is the opening of our show! It is a happy song, and I hope you like it! It is available on iTunes and Amazon.com. So I just had to “go back to the video tape” and check it out.  I’m sure there’s more to it than what can be heard…not surprisingly, it’s fittingly Latin sounding.  Not sure if she wrote it, produced it, sang it or all of the above.  Couldn’t help but find it comical… there’s yet another real housewife on ITunes.  If I’m correct, there’s at least one in each franchise… except Beverly Hills… to date anyway (don’t know much about the new housewife).  Singing seems almost as popular as writing a book… almost.  Whether you like her or not, Teresa was correct when she said “anyone can be a singer these days.”

Dancing with the Stars –All Stars, Week 3, Iconic Dances – Eliminations by COCFarm

There are two eliminations this week.  In the first group, it’s between Kirstie & Drew.  Drew goes home. At the end of the show, it’s between Sabrina & Helio (Bristol had just been reveled to be safe…ugh!).  Helio goes home. So two winners of their previous seasons are gone.  It’s a different DWTS. Next week, Paula Abdul is a guest judge.  There has been speculation that she may become a permanent judge. DWTS says that’s not the case. Bristol has received death threats and was sent a mysterious white powder.  I think she needs to be gone already, but sheesh, that’s taking things too far. Next week, these are the dances the 9 remaining couples must perform:

  • Gilles: Bollywood
  • Sabrina: Jitterbug
  • Shawn: Mambo
  • Emmitt: Bolero
  • Apolo: Hip Hop
  • Melissa: Jitterbug
  • Kelly: Contemporary
  • Kirstie: Charleston
  • Bristol: Rock n Roll

Whew.  My girls were not eliminated.  No need to break into the bar to help me swallow that those less entertaining remain.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning all. The sun is shinning bright. Have a good day.

  2. Happy Birthday LizzieLou!!! Morning All!!! Powell- I feel like it’s always sunny where you are and it’s always raining here in New York/Connecticut (where I live/work). I want to be where you are!!!

  3. Powell says:

    COCFarm it’s not a different DWTS. Bristol. should have never been a part of the,All Stars. She can’t dance ballroom. It’s just like it was before with her as a part OT the show. Is she going to be there until they get down to the last three? I’ve never voted but I will as many times as I can next Monday.

    • Both Bristol and Kristi are out of their league on the show IMHO. Some of the others – my favs Shawn and Apolo among them – are gifted athletes that get better each week.

      • Powell says:

        Kirstie deserved to be there much more than Bristol but Bristol needs to go then Kirstie. It should have been Pamela, Bristol, Kirstie gone in that order. They should have brought back Corey instead of Bristol.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          From the little I saw I agree with you. Interesting about the lawsuit comment below. It used to be that people would say no if it made them look like they’re out of their league. Now not so much I guess.

      • Powell says:

        Corey & his brother were/are suing Bristol for her show because Corey & his brother had the concept where they were going to all live together and Bristol also. Corey & his brother were advised by their people I guess that it wasn’t a good idea to have Bristol so they nixed it and she stole it. That’s what was in the media.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Bristol is not a star. What are her accomplishments coming into this show? That she got pregnant, that she’s an unwed mother? Not judging, just wondering what constitutes a star on this show. That’s her claim to fame, her mother is famous and she got preggers. So why is she on Dancing with the Stars. She’s the star of what, again? Please remind me because my memory fails me right now. I suppose they like the fact that she brings a whole bunch of viewers. The Tea Party, right? Is that her fan base?

      • Let’s keep the political stuff on the political page pls. I think they have a very loose definition of star so that doesn’t bother me. It’s just that this show is supposed to be about all-stars – or ones with talent. I cringe when she is on the stage. Certainly better than Pam Anderson – but still.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Ok, no prob. I guess I did cross the line of politics by mentioning her mom? …didn’t mean to!! I was just wondering who else was rooting for her, because she seems to have a large and loyal fan base that saves her from week to week. Maybe it’s the whole state of Alaska supporting her. As for the star thing… It just seems the other “stars” are known for SOMETHING in their careers…not all are widely known, but they still seemed to have accomplished something/anything in their own careers; they weren’t merely related to a famous person. I feel like JoeGui, why am I even commenting? I haven’t even watched one episode this season. Whatever I “know” I get from this blog and it seems to be the big topic in our weekly Tues staff meetings! My co-workers seem to be enamored with Shawn, by the way!

          • amalfi says:

            I think her ties to Levi Johnson and his ties to Kathy Griffin made her more in the pop-culture vernacular. Darn you Kathy Griffin. grrr…..

            • lovemamaearth says:

              He’s a nobody too. I didn’t think Lainey brought up the p word as much as trying to decide who her voters are. Being there when she knows she shouldn’t be would embarrass most from my generation.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt, LoveMama. You know, I’m the church lady/rule lady…so that’s ok. I didn’t realize I was going to the dark side. Just needed to be pulled back. LOL!!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              oh yeah, Kathy and Levi…that was funny. Well Kathy was obsessed and Levi ate it up, didn’t he?

              • Called A Princess... says:

                LaineyLainey, mentioned something about a tea party. That is what made the comment somewhat political. IMO. It is kind of hard to talk about Bristol’s stardom without mentioning her demographic base.

      • Powell says:

        Lainey are you reincarnated as my mom? My mom says the exact same thing. 🙂

      • Orson says:

        Of course she’s a ‘celebrity’. Her photo has been on tabloid magazines. She’s even been in a scandal. And she’s had a “reality” show of her own. And she’s the daughter of a ‘celebrity’. Nothing to do with politics. Now, as to whether she’s ever done anything that deserves being celebrated as much as any Kardassian or “Real Housewife.” she’s just got a different sort of PR machine behind her.

      • melthehound says:

        Why was Chaz Bono on the show a couple seasons ago? Explain that one and you’ll have your answer, Lainey. Not a star and can’t dance at all. How about Rob Kardassian? Most of them, at best, are has beens but at one time, they had careers that could at least be called star worthy but there are many WTF contestants on that show. I know you’re questioning a contestant on this ‘all stars’ season but the name of the show Is, Dancing With The Stars ..

        • more like “Dancing with Whoever the ph*ck needs this show the most to restart their dwindling or non-existant career”

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            “Dancing with a HasBeen, WannaBe, NeverWas” next on ABC.

          • cocfarm says:

            Well, let’s be real. If you are an ‘A’ list celebrity, you aren’t going to do DWTS. But I don’t have a problem with that so much…it’s the reality and ‘news’ peeps that bother me. We have had ‘government employees’ as well. I think it’s more of: if you are in the news, or want to be in the news again, sign here.

            The athletes are great, very good at putting the nose to the grind stone, but they are has beens as well. Once you are past the prime of 20, where else are you going to compete and use your skill set?

            They seem to be having a great time though, which can be fun to watch. Er, that is, everyone BUT Bristol and Drew. Both of them are/were downers. No one else seems to be taking it that seriously.

            • melthehound says:

              Cocfarm, I’m not knocking anyone being on the show. As I’ve said, I don’t watch. I just responded to a question with a question asking why are Any of them there and used Chaz Bono as an example of what I thought, a WTF appearance.

              • cocfarm says:

                No worries here MTH. Just adding my 2 cents. The newsies, actual elected officials & reality stars are the ones that really lower DWTS for me.

                And thanks for the Amazing Race recaps. I missed the end last week by switching over to Dexter. I would have taped it previously, but knowing I’d have your review to read, made it easier to switch away. But now I’m sad that anti-Aviva is gone. I liked them. And it frustrates me that they would have won the previous week if they didn’t help the DD’s.

                • melthehound says:

                  You’re welcome. I’m glad people enjoy reading them even if I’m unsure they are (against a NJ reunion blog). 😀

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Oh MTH, I read them!! the twins have won me over. They are so cute and funny! Trey Lexi did well. Loving that show.

                  • cocfarm says:

                    I’m unsure as well since I also go up against a bravo show! We can knowingly tip a drink to one another on our nights of reviews. But I certainly read yours in detail and find myself agreeing with you.

                    • melthehound says:

                      I read yours as well so I know what people are talking about here. I go back to the season premier of TAR against part 1 of the NJ reunion. 740 comments and 10, if I’m being liberal about it, about TAR recap. Not that I really care mind you. I know there are many who read and simply don’t comment. It’s always been that way with every non Bravo and more so, non HWs show. I wouldn’t expect any different 😉

                    • cocfarm says:

                      MTH, I can’t reply to your comment about TAR going against NJ because we are out of space, but I hear you. I will comment from now on because I don’t really watch Bravo anymore except Top Chef. This year everyone sucked me back into NY, but Aviva made me run screaming away again.

                      I will comment on TAR from here on out. Today has been a good day for me to see I am not blogging to myself! I was wondering if I should just stop. I get that it’s good to see feedback now. I love TAR…so I will be watching.

                    • melthehound says:

                      Comment only if you want to cocfarm, I’m not complaining or begging for comments (in case that’s what it sounded like).

                    • cocfarm says:

                      Oops, no, that’s not how I meant it. Just that it’s nice to know people are with you and not all on Bravo. Since there is much Bravo discussion, I tend not to post. Did not think you were begging. It’s just nice to have a dialog.

                    • melthehound says:

                      It’s all good cocfarm 😉

            • Powell says:

              cocfarm I don’t agree about Drew. He should still be there and if Kirstie didn’t improve next Monday she should be gone or if she did improve it should have been Drew or Helio next.

              • cocfarm says:

                Drew had more dancing talent and was really good, but he kept crabbing about the judging and I think that doesn’t translate into votes. That’s why I get why he’s gone. But is a FAR better dancer than Kirstie or Bristol. If it was just about dancing, the order they went home would have been:
                Bristol
                Pam
                Kirstie
                and then a group sort of in order of Joey, Drew, Helio & Emmitt
                I think it should come down to the women of Sabrina, Kelly, Melissa & Shawn. But that’s just me. Just my opinion!

                Too bad we can’t script it Powell! Who do you think should win? And then who do you think will win?! I know, I loaded question!

                • Powell says:

                  cocfarm I am really loving Shane and Kelly. Those two are killing it. I can’t choose between them right now.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Chaz came onstage when she was playing Chastity on the Sonny and Cher show. 😉 Plus wasn’t she some kind of rep for the transgender population? No, not officially, right? So basically he’s related to Cher. Just like Bristol and Sarah. As for Rob…does “reality star” count? (dubioius a title as that is…) Oh wait, but I just remembered Bristol had a reality show, too (or her momma did). So I guess that’s her star-ship, too. Like Rob.

          • melthehound says:

            Don’t forget about Jersey Shore’s breakout star, Mike ‘the situation’ (sorry if you actually Wanted to forget about him). I remember Chastity on the S&C show. After the show ended however, most likely forgot she even existed sans those in the LBGT community years later. You’re probably right about DWTS having a representative much like, Rosie on RHONJ. A Representative. I don’t actually watch this show, I can’t stand those azzhat judges. I just read the gossip here about it.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              ewww! ohhh! You had to remind me. Poor Mike, his toes were so turned in…he was doomed from the get-go.

              • cocfarm says:

                pfft! Nice visual! Deer in headlights is how he came across too!

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I know, right? He didn’t know what he was getting into. That dancing stuff is harrrrrrd! Can’t fist pump your way through that kind of choreography.

              • Powell says:

                Yeah. That was another wasted spot on the show. Some of them don’t take it seriously. Remember when Master P was on. I was madder than Bristol being on.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Yeah, his insecurity really showed. He found it was something he wasn’t great at and instead of being humbled by it, he was all haughty and sort of disdainful.

                • cocfarm says:

                  Master P was such an a$$. But worse then him was that grinning fool who I think went to prison for graft. He was in; starts with ‘p’ and ends in an ‘ics’.

        • cocfarm says:

          I actually liked Chaz. Correct, not a star, but I thought it took some courage to do what he did and he’s a likable person. At least to me. But he could dance and made an effort. He wasn’t horrible.

        • Powell says:

          Chaz, you’ve got a point. Parental Hollywood/showbiz affiliation. Rob K is a celebrity right along w/his family. MTH the problem today good or bad is that celebrity is defined differently than 15, 20, 25 yrs ago. It’s a different world of entertainment and it’s not going back to days of old.

          • melthehound says:

            Most ‘famous’ people these days are more famous for who they are related to. Personally, I think all of them are trashy wannabes. I blame the current age of that on the original fameWhore of our time, Paris Hilton.

            • cocfarm says:

              I’ll buy that. At least she got herself out of the hole she dug. Lindsey Lohan hasn’t been that lucky.

              • Powell says:

                Paris keeps hooking up w/guys that get them kicked out of hotels/casinos in Vegas. Too bad Paris messed up w/Parris the son of a shipping magnet. .

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  There was NO WAY IN HELL that PARRIS’ FAMILY was going to let the likes of Paris Hilton into their family. I read that his family thought she was PURE TRASH and threatened to disinherit him if he actually married her. They also allegedly REFUSED to meet Paris’ parents, despite Paris’ parents SEVERAL attempts.

    • COCFarm says:

      My comment about it being a different DWTS is about two season winners already being sent home…seems their fan base did not show up. I am COMPLETELY there with you about Bristol. I stated last week or the week before why I felt we’d be stuck with her for quite awhile but don’t want to say it since the ban, but it starts with a ‘p’ and ends with an ‘ics!’ I’d be embarrassed if I was being kept around for reasons other than what I brought to the dance floor. Oh, and the fact that I designed that hideous outfit!

      I have never voted before, but think I will as well next week.

      • Powell says:

        😀 No ..ics here either. LOL

        • cocfarm says:

          But you can’t spell DWTS or anything else for that matter without ics coming into it!

          Thanks for commenting Powell. I was thinking I was alone in watching the show. I’ve never watched a full season before and find myself enjoying it. My husband has stopped complaining about it and has thrown in a few “that was impressive.”

          On a funny note, our parrot started commenting when Gilles, Melissa and one other performed. She’s start saying “Wow, WOW, Woooo…did you see that? WOW.” So I guess she’s enjoying it as well.

          • Powell says:

            cocfarm that’s funny about your parrot commenting. I have a cockatiel and he loves music. He listens to the radio everyday. He gets mad if you forget to turn it on.

            • cocfarm says:

              My parrot condescends to me. It really is pretty funny. When she wants to take a shower, I will get out her bath because no one is taking a shower at the moment. And she will look at me, cock her head to one side and say “No bath. Sssshhhhoooooowwwwweeeerrrr.” I have no idea how she learned to do it but the stinker uses her words with intent!

              Does yours dance to the music? Mine doesn’t but will bob to hand clapping. She’s more vocal. If she likes a song she will do ‘wow’ but if she doesn’t, she says “hey, pipe down.’

              • Powell says:

                He moves back and forth on his perch to something he really likes. He was traumatized at his previous owners. Kids pocked sticks in his cage and a cat was always after him so he never learned to talk and he doesn’t like people touching him. He doesn’t say hi & bye but he makes his own sounds that he’s saying hi when you come home and bye when you leave. He loves people being at home w/him. He doesn’t mind being alone but he does like people w/him. He does funny things to make you laugh.

                • Sus says:

                  I knew a lady that had a parrot who was kept in the kitchen where the lady talked on the phone. The only words the parrot could say was a one way phone conversation. “Hello, yes, I’m fine how are you, yes, no, oh really, no, yes, no, yes

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    LOL, Sus! You guys now have me wanting a damned bird now!!

                    • cocfarm says:

                      Oh, they are work! They are less work than dogs, by far, but they require a whole different type of dedication and live forever! That said, she runs our household, tells the dogs what to do (and they listen!) and seems to be all knowing.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Awww, I’m sorry about your bird’s prior abuse, Powell. I’m so happy he/she found a wonderful home with you, though. (((Powell’s Bird)))

                • cocfarm says:

                  Sorry your dino had a bad past. Glad you have him now. Give him a peck on the beak from our flock.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                That is TOO cute!!

                • zanne says:

                  We had a parrot at the store that I worked at that would ring a phone, answer it, give advice and give a proper good by. It was strange how many times on of us would answer the phone,only to realize it was the bird.

                  • cocfarm says:

                    The guy we bought our parrot from had an African grey that was mad at him after he was gone for a long weekend. The guy was almost a quadrapeligic and when he sat down to eat, the phone rang, got up to get it, takes him a long time, phone stops ringing when he gets to it. Sits down, happens again. Sits down, happens again….and then the grey, from the other room says “that will show you.”. And he realized it was the grey the whole time.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    These stories are just tickling me to death!

      • I confess. I’ve been watching this season of DWTS, too. The overall quality of dancing is pretty wonderful and fun to watch. I could do without “during practice this happened” scenes. (It would have spared us the petulant, whiny behavior of one of the “celebrities.”)
        Leaving the …ics for another place, I might just have to vote …. 😉

        • LaineyLainey says:

          “celebrities”…cute. 😉

        • cocfarm says:

          I really hate the ‘hallmark’ moments. It’s one of the reasons I’ve never really watched it. It’s too manipulated…full of time fillers. I just want to see the action. It’s my issue with the Olympics as well. Man, I’m a grouch!

          • melthehound says:

            I hate the hallmark moments (good name for them BTW 🙂 ) in all of these shows. I just don’t care about them. Dancing comps, show me the dancing. Singing comps, let me hear the singing.

            • cocfarm says:

              You gave Paris Hilton ownership of the bad reality shows which I agree with. I think we can give hallmark moments to Bob Kostas. And I like him…just hate that manufactured sentiment. I think it started with the Olympics. Or am I wrong? When can we put a finger on that contrived crap starting?

              • cocfarm says:

                pfft! Maybe it belongs to Hallmark commercials themselves! I remember McDonalds doing it then as well. But in a tv program, I can only go back to the Olympics.

              • melthehound says:

                You may be correct about the genesis of the hallmark moments. I know I grew to hate them on shows like American Idol and the like. I guess most love a sob story though. I can’t say I’m one of those people though because, as I said, I just don’t care.

                • cocfarm says:

                  I like background stories sometimes but I don’t need a vaseline lens and sappy music. Just give me the facts…and not in a 10 minute montage. How about 2 min. Some of them (what ever it is, thinking Olympics here) are interesting background stories. But the melodrama just kills it for me. Just give me the facts and I’ll draw my own conclusions.

        • Powell says:

          I saw the first hr was them practing, behind the scenes. I didn’t watch any of that. I always get a kick out of the show when they have celebs that are really into the dances and work each week to progress and make it fun for the fans.

      • lovemamaearth says:

        You can say it in the politics blog. 🙂 There’s a link in the header.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I agree that Bristol never should have been a part of the All-Stars; however, playing Devil’s Advocate, people that like her will point out that she made it pretty far when she was on DWTS the first time (IMO, this was not due to her actual dancing ability, but people voting for her because of politics and her mother. I AM NOT AND DO NOT WANT TO DISCUSS POLITICS. I am just giving my opinion about ol’ Bristol on DWTS). They will say that this fact means that she SHOULD be on the All-Star Edition.

      I LOVE DWTS. I try to watch every season. I have not been able to watch this season because it is on at the same time as “Basketball Wives – L.A.”. Because I blog that show and do NOT have a DVR, I’ve got to watch “BBW-L.A.” instead of DWTS.

      I plan to catch up on all DWTS episodes online SOON, though! Even though I have not watched, I want Emmit Smith, Apolo Ohno or Gilles Marini to win.

      • Powell says:

        Detox they are good but Shawn and Kelly are bringing it too. If it’s the 5 of them down to the wire that is when the real competition starts.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Thanks for the info., Powell. I think Kelly won the (godawful-looking) Mirror Ball Trophy in Season 1, right? She is SOOOO tiny. I swear, if she turned to the side, she’d look like an X-ray.

          • cocfarm says:

            Tiny, but sexy! You will be impressed when you see her dance. Her and Val have great chemistry. And I kind of would like to see her win. Remember, they almost tried to take the mirror ball away from her saying the Seinfeld guy should have won instead. She’s the last of the ABC soaps too. Sabrina and Melissa are also doing great. Gilles is fab as is Apolo, but I’d like to see a woman take it this year. Er, except Bristol!

            • Powell says:

              Kelly and Val have fantastic chemistry. They were on E! jokingly talking about how wardrobe has to strap her boobs down. They have fun on that dance floor.

          • Powell says:

            Yeah Kelly did. The show was really fun s1 & 2. She and John Hurley basically had a dance off s2.

            • cocfarm says:

              That wasn’t season 2….it was a second season finally to season 1 in a way because many said John Hurley deserved to win and Len was the biggest complainer. I think they learned from that.

  4. Iowagirl says:

    Melissa does need a new PR firm, maybe she can hire Tre’s. She wants everything Else that Tre has she might as well get some PR help.

    Does any one else think Mel’s claim she could afford a house 10 times what she has crazy? Really? A 38 million dollar house. I think Oprah and Tiger paid around 50 for their homes, they are way out of her league. She thinks awfully highly of herself and needs a reality check.

    • amalfi says:

      Her degree wasn’t in math. lol.

      The day Melissa can afford a $38 million house is the day she wins a Grammy.

      Never. Gonna. Happen.

        And I’m going to buy her CD. Not gonna happen kids. 🙂

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Considering their net worth is a negative one and a half million – maybe they can afford to rent in a less expensive area….Melissa really needs to stop talking about it.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        The day she can afford a $3.8 million dollar house is the day she sells more gold records than Micheal Jackson.

    • Rebecca says:

      No way in hell – not a single chance in hell did Teresa call Antonia ugly. It never, never happened.

      I can’t watch this woman on my tv screen anymore.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        I think she did. Tre is very competitive and probably said it when comparing her to her daughters in TreVision. That she would dedicate a blog to her neice saying she didn’t call her ugly and then add countless quotes where viewers/twitter followers called the girls mom a ‘stripper, whore etc’ is unconscionable. That was the most disgusting move ever.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I’ve been hearing about her blog, now I have to go read it for myself. I didn’t know about all the twitter followers’ stripper messages. scandalous!!

          If the hooker boot fits…

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            Tre wears it really well. She sure loves to blast her sexual escapades more that the ‘supposed’ hooker. What do some say… rather be a hooker than a whore?

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              How does one blasting one’s sexual escapades with their HUSBAND a “whore”?

              True, it makes Teresa TACKY. I do not think it makes her a WHORE, though.

              I mean, I thought it was o.k. to sleep with one’s HUSBAND (just not someone ELSE’s). If I had a husband, I sure in the hell WOULD be sleeping with him (I mean, that’s part of the reason I decided to make those vows and agree to have him “all up in my face” for better or worse in the first place. That’s one of his DUTIES to me, IMO. :-D).

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Oops, “How does one blasting one’s sexual escapades with their HUSBAND make them a “whore”? I forgot to type in the words “make them” in my 1st sentence. Mea culpa.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I’m glad you like it. 😉 I am DEAD SERIOUS too. I mean, I like my space and my alone time. It keeps me sane. If I am giving up some of that for you, the LEAST you will be doing is laying the pipe when you are at home!! I mean, why the hell would I be married if I was not sleeping with my husband? Well, maybe I’d be married if he were FILTHY RICH and allowed me to sleep with other men. *Shrug*

                  My PERFECT marriage would be one where my husband and I had houses right next door to each other, like Tim Burton and Helena Bonham-Carter.

                  • Powell says:

                    Seperate homes doesn’t sound like a bad idea. 🙂 Helen & Tim don’t live together? I didn’t know that. Detox if you respond I think you’d better start another thread. This one it getting tiny. 🙂

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                Maybe whore doesn’t fit… whore-ish, slutty, desperate, insecure etc. could also describe it! My point is that you can’t throw stones when your acting like a stupid humping slut! Yes married woman are supposed to have sex with their husbands. And YES she can choose to scream it from the rooftops. Just don’t go around talking about peoples past in the sex industry while you appear to be auditioning as the over-sexed, under-used deserate housewife. Did that explain it?

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Nope. Not at all. The “whore” label still does not make any logical sense when applying it to a WIFE discussing her sex life with her HUSBAND (That is NOT EVEN CLOSE to mentioning that you heard a rumor that someone once worked in the sex industry. JMHO). I do appreciate you taking the time to answer my question, though. 😀 (*Waving*).

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I think maybe ‘attention whore’ fits Teresa but it also fits most of the HW.

            • RealHousewifeVA says:

              I don’t think trying to convince herself she’s in a good marriage makes her a whore, more like silly, delusional and embarrassing. I hate when any of the women talk about their sex life, as if the viewer cares!

              I do think Melissa was probably a dancer at that gentlemen’s club, though. That’s probably why she’s always careful to use the word “stripper” in her denials, and not dancer 😉

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Yeah, that’s TMI stuff that I definitely do NOT want to hear. I will only listen to that kinda stuff from my very GOOD girlfriends. I don’t know Teresa like that to really want to hear all about her sex business. I feel the same way about JoGo constantly discussing his sex life (or lack thereof) with Melissa.

                I am BUSY. I do not have time for that kind of information. I’m sure many people don’t. In the words of Sweet Brown:

                • Amber...Real Wife says:

                  LOL Oooh chile that was awesome! We all don’t have ‘no time for that’! I posted up top that it was her insecurity that comes across desperate.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    I LOVE Sweet Brown. I was dancing in my chair watching this little video. I still think the “Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife” one is better, though.

                • RealHousewifeVA says:

                  OMG I played that clip and my baby daughter is dancing! HAHAHA

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                Her choice to act that way on camera doesn’t scream lady-like or good Mom either. She seems so intent on proving that her marriage, SEXUALLY, is strong that she’s leaving a pretty ugly legacy for her daughters. She has such disdain for strippers/dancers/cocktail waitresses, yet she continually resorts to talking and pleading for SEX in order to prove her prowess as a lover/wife. Mel keeps her draws on (finally right LOL) while Tre is constantly throwing them on the chandelier yet she’s the lady? Give Me a Break!

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I do not think a WIFE saying that she enjoys/or is having sex with her HUSBAND is necessarily an “ugly legacy.” It is TACKY, yes. At least the girls will know that her Mom and Dad did have sex, unlike some married people (like Caroline. Who knows? Maybe Al & Caroline are swinging from the chandelier every day…but I DOUBT it seriously. *Shrug*).

                  I think a MUCH UGLIER legacy is crawling across broken glass to get hired by the employer of your Sister-In-Law (and your children’s Aunt & your husband’s Sister) and talking sh*t and very negatively about her and her family from the VERY FIRST EPISODE and VERY FIRST BLOG onward (Melissa only pulled back when she realized she was not having the effect she desired. She started faking being nice-nice and faking her real feelings with Teresa once MANY people started a backlash against her for it).

                  Now THAT is some truly UGLY SH*T! JMHO.

                  • Amber...Real Wife says:

                    Talking about and pleading for sex will not be her proudest moments when her kids ask why so desperate Ma? As for the joining of the show I doubt the kids will ask why as it was obviously done for MONEY, FAME & OPPORTUNITY by EVERYONE. And finally, maybe i’m reaching thinking her daughters will find her actions deplorable. Maybe they’ll be just like her. Whatever that means. 🙂

                • RealHousewifeVA says:

                  LOL it’s not that serious…;) I hardly would call much of Teresa’s behavior ‘ladylike’.. flipping a table, pushing Andy, etc.

                  I personally don’t think any of them are good moms because in my opinion, no GOOD mom would subject her children to this Reality TV nonsense. It’s just my opinion, though. Even the ones in other cities who’s kids are not allowed to film. It doesn’t mean it’s okay to embarrass yourself on TV and allow your kids to face the ramifications of your actions (Simon barney posted on Facebook once that his son’s friend showed him the clip of Tamra naked in the tub with Eddie! How mortifying for any child).

                  None of them are doing their children any favors by being on these shows, so I’m not going to argue about who’s more or less ‘lady-like’, lol.

                  There’s a youtube video floating around of Joe and Mel at a gay bar for one of Mel’s performances, and before Mel comes on stage, Joe is on stage with a topless woman and buries his head in her boobs. I think they all forget that this stuff is on the internet FOREVER! Can you imagine googling your parents and finding that stuff on the Internet?! OMG

                  In the end of the day though, since these people are not related to me and therefore not causing me any actual embarrassment…. I’m TEAM TRE!! WOOP WOOP! 🙂

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Have you ever seen Melissa’s or Joey’s twitter feed ( or Caroline or Jac’s or Kathy’s) ? They tweet and RT awful things about Teresa and have been doing it all season. I was actually surprised that Teresa didn’t go there with them sooner.

          But I do think that ALL of them should have shown restraint.

      • kit9 says:

        Not only is there a chance, it’s an excellent chance that I’d bet $ on. T is a liar of epic proportions. Her word, like her denial, is useless. She’s shown she’s willing to take her anger at Melissa out on Mel’s kids. She’s extremely competitive and has daughters close in age to Antonia. And, as we’ve seen she really REALLY likes attacking people’s looks. She said it. All odds point to hell yes.

        • trudie says:

          Assuming arguendo that T made the comment, why would Melissa feel the need to repeat it? It is my understanding that the allegation is that T made the comment in private to Melissa; there was no reason for Melissa to put it out there. I assume it was to paint T as a horrible, horrible person, but why would M put that out there about her own daughter? There was no reason to use her daughter as a pawn in this game. IMO

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            You are absolutely right! It was to show how despicable Tre is. However, the little girl has a mirror and can see she’s absolutely beautiful. It wont hurt her as it’s not true. Just hateful spewing from a horrible aunt.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Amber, regardless if it is true or not, being called names, especially by people you love and who are support to love you DOES hurt.
              Even if Teresa did say it (I don’t think she did) it was wrong for Melissa to put it out there, she threw her own kid under the bus to make Teresa look bad. I think that was the lowest of the low.

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                Yes Rabble it may hurt or by that time she’ll know the contempt the Mom and Aunt felt for each other and disregard it. A mirror and positive reinforcement works wonders. Yet Tre uses, allows, encourages her kids to talk smack about Melissa. Is that okay? Sure Mel’s daughter will see what her aunt said about her someday, meanwhile Mel has to hear some crazy ill-bred kids talking shit about her to a audience of millions. What’s worse the aunt talking crap or the kids of said aunt talking crap about the other aunt? I think the latter. I would be SHOCKED if EVER Mel’s kids said something negative about Tre on camera.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  Oh I don’t think it’s okay for ANY of the adults to have some of the conversations they have about each other in the presence of children. It makes me sad to know some of the things these children have been witness to, the sum of it is just as rippling as the very first episode of S3.
                  Melissa and Joey turned their own son’s baptism into a battle royal was bad enough, I don’t see the need to make it worse. Nor would I want any of it memorialized either on tape or in print.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  Do Mel’s children even speak on camera, not to mention an edit that favored everyone but Teresa?

                • trudie says:

                  If Melissa is willing to through her daughter under the bus in an attempt to discredit T, I wonder if she is capable of giving her daughter that positive reinforcement. Again, why do it in the first place?

              • Powell says:

                Right. And doesn’t everyone have that 1 relative that has said something you’ll never forget? Antonia needs to have to carry around w/her throughout the difficult teenage yrs that “my Tia Teresa called me ugly” weather T said it or not which I don’t believe either, when Antonia hears that her mother has said T said it it will be devastating for her.

            • RealHousewifeVA says:

              No offense but to say that a child won’t be hurt when their mom tells them their aunt called them ugly, is really some serious denial. Children can most certainly develop dangerous self esteem issues by being called names, regardless of how beautiful they may be. As a mother, even if my sister in law said something like that about my daughter, I would never announce it to the world. That does more harm than good. Is she THAT set on taking down Teresa that she doesn’t care how her child might be affected by it? If so, that’s pathetic. She should move on with her life. Teresa isn’t in it anymore, so she should be happy since that’s what she wanted. Seems, though, that she knows her ‘fame’ status is only defined by Teresa’s role in her life, she she will keep mentioning her for attention.

            • trudie says:

              Yes, the child has a mirror. Does that mean that the words won’t hurt? Not trying to start a kerfuffle, but do you really think “it won’t hurt her as it’s not true”? My daughter shaved her arms in 8th grade and wore long sleeves at all times because the kids in her class called her a hairy ape. She was 13 at the time. How old is Antonia?

              I can think of no benign reason for Melissa to put that information out there. I honestly don’t care if T said it to her. It was Melissa’s choice to make the information public and risk hurting her child. And for what? Oh, that’s right. Money.

              They are all stupid heads.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I do not think Teresa EVER called Antonia UGLY (“YOU’SE A LIE, MELISSA!! YOU’SE A LIE!” I cannot wait for Closet Freak’s next VLOG). Like you Trudie, I want to assume arguendo.

            Assuming arguendo, that Teresa DID say it, she did NOT say it in a PUBLIC FORUM, at least. Melissa is the one who put that (FALSE) information out there to read some day.

            Melissa, on the other hand, said in a PUBLIC FORUM (which was Part 2 of the RHONJ Reunion) that she was moving because she did not want HER kids to go to school with TERESA’S kids, indicating that she thinks HER kids are somehow “better” than Teresa’s kids. I know if I saw my Aunt say such a thing about me on national television, my feelings would be VERY hurt.

            Once I was old enough to understand, however, I would come to my senses and realize that my feelings should not be hurt by a person like Melissa anyway because, her narcissism and immaturity, probably caused her to say this to hurt me (a MINOR CHILD) as “payback” for me (Milania) saying “Melissa stinks” or for me (Gia) saying, “Melissa lip-synchs.”

            I would also, by that point, realize that Melissa is too immature to realize that there is a REASON for the saying, “Out of the mouths of babes”: children often — before they finally get it drilled into their heads that some things are not nice and are inappropriate to say out loud and/or in public — speak the TRUTH (Melissa DOES stink, IMO. And she also DOES lip synch, IMO. Those kids were simply stating the TRUTH, and they should be given a little leeway by a GROWN A*S ADULT [Melissa], for simply behaving like damned CHILDREN [because that is what they ARE, unlike Melissa]). JMHO.

      • PJ says:

        I agree Rebecca no way did Teresa say that about Antonia. Melissa hits below the belt using children, Teresa doesn’t do that. It’s sick that Melissa would put this out there.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          There is no way beleive it mainly because it doesn’t make any sense.
          Melissa tells Teresa that Antonia was signed to a modeling agency and Teresa says “they always pick the ugly ones”? Isn’t Gia also signed to an agency? Does that make her ugly.

          What I could see happening is Melissa saying that Antonia was signed and Teresa saying how hard it is to get booked and snarking that ‘they always pick the ugly ones’.

          But no way do I beleive it happened the way Melissa said it happened.

          And even if it did, Melissa is an idiot for repeating it. Now not only is out there for Antonia to see one day but there are deranged Melissa fans running around the net saying that it’s Teresa’s kids that are ugly among other things. probably They are also fueled by Melissa’s awful statement that she would never have her kids in the same school as Teresa’s (regardless of being a lie, it is still damaging). Melissa practically gave her following the green light to her following to go after little kids. I think it’s pretty vile and disgusting.

          Melissa claims that Teresa was calling her stipper and a gold digger behind her back yet calls her child (Teresa’s own God daughter) ugly to her face? Didn’t happen….no fn way.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            Actually before Mel&Antonia even came on the show crazed fans were calling Tre’s girls ugly. Can’t blame Mel for that. And as for the comment ‘supposedly’ make by Tre, it could’ve been as innocent as one of her footNmouth mistakes or as evil as a jealous competitive mother downing another mom’s kid.

            When I was 8 my AlmostSpinsterAunt chose me for her flowergirl. Her SIL, a hateful whore who wanted her 6yr old for the part, said why is she the flowergirl, she’s too old, she’s practically a woman! (At 8… I’m only 5’4 now!) My DearRealMom told her what are talking about? She’s a child and only 2 years older. She’s the flowergirl that’s it! When she started lobbying to get my Aunt to have 2 flowergirls, my Aunt emboldened by my RealMom said NO. I only want one flowergirl and My neice is my flowergirl. BTW I was in the room for this convo and saw the hate directed towards me. I never said hello to that woman again.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Yes, people did take shots at Teresa’s girls before this…but now there are people doing it under the veil of “Team Melissa” and using clips of ammo given to them by Melissa. ‘Poor Melissa needs to sell her dream home because she lives in fear that in 6 years, Teresa’s horrible, spoil, ugly bratty daughters will terrorize her children in school and smite their mother’.

            • Powell says:

              See Amber that’s what I said upthread. We all gave 1 family member that says something we never forget. Your 8 yr old mind kept ahold to that and you’ve never forgot it. Antonia is going to feel that sane way about T throughout herlife when she learns of it. An that is her mother’s fault . Wow what a mean lady she was to you. Sorry you had to go thru that. Does/did she know why you never spoke to her again

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                That whore was so self-centered she probably never noticed. After the wedding she rarely came to my aunt’s house. After a family fight she never returned.

                  And thanks Powell. I remember her hate but I also remember my DearRealMom blasting her and letting her no without words ” Mess with my daughter and I will cut you bitch!” LOL That’s what I remember most.

            • Sus says:

              I was completely selfish when I got married – no cute kids to upstage me!

              • trudie says:

                When I got married, the only children invited were 13 or older. I had a relative call me incensed that her children weren’t invited. She was looking forward to my wedding as an opportunity to “show her kids off.”

        • VV says:

          Melissa’s been lying to viewers since S3 Ep 1.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            BOOM! Teresa’s been lying too, though. I just felt like typing “BOOM” (BTW, as noted above, I think Melissa is LYING, and I think she lies ALL the damned time too.).

    • kendo says:

      I read the famewhorgas blog. Melissa has pissed off the wrong people.
      Seems like all of her dirt, even from high school, is coming out.

      • kendo says:

        Seems like her and JoeGo’s world is crashing. They’ve done so much to hurt Teresa and their family.

        • 2Stupid says:

          I am late to the party as I just watched part 2. Mego and JoeGo are DESPICABLE. I mean the way she never acknowledges that they had an agenda from the beginning. She called Mego a golddigger off camera. They are the ones that brought it up on camera. Was it nice of Teresa, no, but what they are doing is WAY worse. Bringing their nieces up, how low can you go. Melissa didn’t mention the lot that she paid 1mm for was in JoeGo’s parents name, did she? I am no fan of Juicy, but when he said Melissa being all about family in fromt of the cameras, you knew it was the truth. I wished Teresa would get her own show in California, and move with her parents, and NEVER EVER speak to any of these people again. Her children don’t deserve this, and I am not a Tre fan. However, the jealousy these women have is palable. Thanks for letting me vent!

      • I believe there is so much more that goes on, & we are likely better off (not to mention SAFER) not knowing.

        Don’t forget….KimD “runs with the Big Boys” if you get my drift.

        Plus even with just regular folks, no one is going to buy JoGo’s house (unless it’s at a HUGE discount). What normal people would want to have ANYTHING to do with these people? I’m sure there’s a few that don’t know they are connected to the show….but then there are other connections.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I agree. It is not JUST the “Famewhorgas” blog that is starting to reveal some VERY damaging information about Joey & Melissa either.

        “Stoopid Housewives” also does a very good job of giving people Joey & Melissa’s real “number.” SH also talks bad about the other housewives, including Teresa, too. I find her to be pretty unbiased. She talked about Teresa like a DOG in past seasons and still does on occasion.

        She DID, however, take the time to do one blog about how she thought extreme the BIAS and editing AGAINST TERESA & JOE was totally UNFAIR (IMO, my sense of JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS also caused me to agree and side with Teresa when it comes to that. If we are going to reveal DIRTY LAUNDRY, let’s reveal EVERYBODY’s — not JUST Teresa and Joe’s.

        Maybe Teresa should have slept with former RHONJ Producer, Cat Rodriguez, the way Melissa ALLEGEDLY did (I said ALLEGEDLY, People!) to get a better edit (If that rumor is TRUE, Melissa is even more LOWDOWN and more of a TRASHY GUTTER WHORE than I first thought. Maybe she did not want to have sex with Joey because she was too busy having sex with Cat. *Shrug*. JMHO.).

    • Powell says:

      Well Iowagirl when they (cough, cough) sell their home to “getaway” from T, is this The Hatfields & McCoy’s I digress, we shall see if she is still copying Ts style. If she is then we’ll know that she has her spies out.

      • Iowagirl says:

        Funny, I am related to the “real McCoy’s” and they are much more sane than this bunch of women. When things got to out of hand they actually picked up and moved to Arkansas to stop ” the stupid” as my uncle James McCoy says.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Latest cover out there (oh yeah, only Teresa does cover stories)………………..Melissa claims Juicy hit on her.

      This woman will do anything and everything to bring down Teresa. But it aint working.

      • VV says:

        She lives in a bubble and actually believes she can bring Tre down.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          BOOM! Now, THIS “BOOM” is a REAL “BOOM,” VV (unlike my BOOM! above). When it comes to branding and having a way to make REAL INCOME based on her RHONJ platform, Teresa has Melissa beaten BY MILES.

          That atrocity Melissa calls music is probably only selling to Joey (because he’s probably buying some of it to make sure her singles don’t look like they are selling by the 10’s) and the Marco family. I seriously doubt that anybody else (that is SANE) is buying that CRAP!

          I believe in giving credit where credit is due, though: I DO give Melissa an “E” for the SERIOUS effort she has put into taking Teresa down for the past 2-4 years (I am vague on the time period because Melissa started her “bring Teresa DOWN” plans BEFORE she ever even got on the show. Who knows HOW LONG her ENVYand JEALOUSY compelled her to put her plan in motion?).

    • djprincessc says:

      Read this…it explains their WHOLE house situation!! Another great article about what really going on:

      http://famewhorgas.wordpress.com/2012/10/09/melissa-says-we-pay-our-bills/

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I COULD be wrong, but I thought JoGo and Mel’s house was only worth $3.8 million (It does not really matter because, IMO, the can no longer afford a $3.8 million home — and probably never could in the FIRST place. *Shrug*).

      • lori says:

        Did they sell the house yet? If so I’m shocked they got 3.8 million for it.

        • lori says:

          I just went on NJMLS to check it out for myself. Still for sale and asking 3.8. Then went on zillow and they estimated it’s value at 3.1. It’ll be interesting when/if they sell it how much they actually get.

      • Iowagirl says:

        Yes but she says they can afford 10 times the house, making it 38 million. She is crazy!

  5. I don’t have a good feeling about what will happen to HWNY. 😦 This does not look good! Say it ain’t so!!

    So….a little humor on the blog today to get us through!
    Love and hugs to all!

    • Powell says:

      Haha MarDrag very funny. I saw a snippet of The Kardashians one day and Bruce’s was yelling at Kris to hurry up to go out and she said ” If he calls me one more time I’m going to get a fork & stick it in my eye”. Something to that affect. I was like why stick a fork in your own eye. LOL

  6. Powell says:

    Well NMD since you brought it up I think it’s only fair that Andy let Alex have her say also. I always liked Alex. Simon just got on my nerves. I believe Simon when he said he never went to events or was on camera w/o being invited. I just think he liked it too much. Mario is on camera but he doesn’t seem like he needs to be in front of it. Simon did.

    • Sus says:

      I think Simon’s tweets are right. Andy wouldn’t have them on.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        If Simon would distance himself from RHNY and let Alex do her thing then IMO, Andy would have had both JZ and Alex on together – both sides of the season of the mean girls. Alex is saavy enough to get her message across without jeopardizing the franchise. And all JZ wants to do is promote herself!

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Mario is very smug when he is on camera, he is just more conservative. Mario has even tried to argue with the women on the show, on more then one occasion. He and Ramona like to double team other cast members on the show. Simon was not a favorite of mine, but he seemed more up front, after season 1, and I trusted him more then Mario. Mario also seems to like being the veteran husband on the show, at this time. JMHO.

          • Powell says:

            CAP that’s true about Mario and arguing w/the women but I think Mario can take it or leave it. Whereas Simon seemed to relish being on camera. That’s why I think they are on Celebrity Therapy.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              I think they are on CT because they want the money. When a man gets into arguments with women on a reality show starring women, I think he has a vested interest in camera time. He could choose not to film, and roll in the mud, and look like an a$$, but this season he went in on Heather beginning with episode one. Later in the season one of the new husbands told him that fighting with women was not right. Degrees of jerk is still jerk. Simon and Mario are so very different. Both have good, and not so good, character issues. IMO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            True. I give Mario a pass, though, because I think he is SEXY! I can be shallow like that at times. *Shrug* 😀

    • lori says:

      I always got the feeling Andy seriously didn’t like Alex. So I doubt he’ll be inviting her back to WWHL. I refuse to watch anything with Jill on it and will wait for the recap here. Hopefully the ratings are horrible and that’s the last we’ll hear from Jill. (please God!)

      • kendo says:

        I watch Andy’s show every night. I always thought he loved J Z. So I think it’s kinda hard to tell if he really likes them or just doing it for the show. Sometimes it is very obvious.

        • lori says:

          I thought he liked JZ too, but I think somewhere along the line she changed and became overbearing and annoying. And when they decided to so the spinoff with Bethenney all beats were off for the others.

          • Powell says:

            lori from the promo they’ve shown JZ asks why was she fired. If that’s what they actually show and if Andy did like her do you think he’ll answer her question and if so will he do it honestly?

            • lori says:

              I don’t have any faith in Andy being honest at this point. It’ll be interesting to see what he says though…not watching it personally but will enjoy reading about it here 🙂

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            ITA. I think Andy liked Jill before she turned into an UNBEARABLE RAGING BEAST!!

        • RealHousewifeVA says:

          He DID love JZ at one point. It was after the whole Bethenny debacle that his opinion changed. He picked a side (Bethenny’s) like the rest of the world, lol. I think he didn’t like the DIva-zilla she had become.
          She went from being this quirky, funny, stereotypical Jewish NY firecracker, to a total drama queen diva that expected the world to revolve around her. Demanding poll results be analyzed, trying to force Ginger’s pic to be placed on WWHL, trying to get Bethenny’s spinoff to fail, writing fake reviews for her book as well as her costar’s books…she became unbearable.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            I thought her downfall with Andy was the WWHL where she told people she could get them on a certain show (what show was it?) and if they wanted to be on, to contact her. Andy tried to laugh it off and she kept repeating it. He finally got his face fully on camera and said to NOT contact Jill, but contact him with the request. I thought then that he’s smiling at her on the outside, but shooting daggers from his eyes. To me, that looked like the point where he changed his mind.

            But then I’m sometimes wrong. 😀

            • RealHousewifeVA says:

              I never saw that episode! how funny

            • LaineyLainey says:

              didn’t he (andypoo) say that all the housewives text him and some more than others…something like that? that one scenario you described is hilarious. She is/was so full of herself. SO POWERFUL, huh?

          • lovemamaearth says:

            I think Andy as well as Jill thought we’d all be on Jill’s side regarding her horrid treatment of a friend Bethenny. Most of us hated it and were very vocal about it in spite of Bravo’s censorship.

        • I think Andy did like JZ in the beginning, but he liked B a LOT more. Remember the night JZ & her mom were on WWHL and she kept saying “It’s in the BOOK!” That night Andy looked like he REALLY wanted to strangle her. JZ always goes too far, she just doesn’t know when to STAWWWP.

          I will not be watching WWHL when she’s on. And I will never ever watch anything Bravo if she gets back on a show. As it is, Bravo has become one of my LEAST watched channels, when it used to be my favorite! I’m not even watching RHONY anymore. No RHOM and I am Flipping Out free as well. I am now convinced (more than ever lol) that all Reality shows have nothing to do with reality. They are SCRIPTED! It takes 10 hours to get 10 minutes of film because they are REHEARSING! Just look what they did to RHONJ. Cat the producer….what an excellent job she did wrecking that show & family. It’s still like watching a car wreck – you just have to look – but I’m disgusted now more than ever at what lengths Bravo will go to get ratings. How disgusting & sick was it when Russell Armstrong committed suicide – and they still aired the da*mn show. Teresa, Melissa, all of them – look what they are willing to do just for a fistful of dollars and fleeting fame.

          • Powell says:

            blue I totally understand. I will try to watch WWHL but if JZ gets back on NY or her own show on any network I will not watch. I wanted to watch Good Afternoon America this summer and didn’t cause she was on it daily, weekly, whatever it was. I’m only going to watch WWHL to see what she has to say, her excuses, her begging, pleading after she said in the media at the beginning of NY that she wouldn’t come back for a million dollars. Boo hoo she was a wreck after being fired, was in bed, blah, blah, blah. I want to hear what she gas to say.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I hope that the ratings are horrible too. Sadly, I fear that I won’t get my wish. I think, unfortunately, the ratings are going to be very high. I also, unfortunately, think that BRAVO, to increase RHONY’s ratings, is going to bring Jill back.

        Aww shucks!! Just when we thought it was safe to get back into the water…..

    • amalfi says:

      Andy is not about “fair.”

      I wonder how much cash that dude has. He keeps some A list company – he must be rolling in it. I hate myself a little for supporting his shenanigans by watching his shows.

      • mkvalle says:

        I love Andy. Why does he have to be fair? He’s not their teacher or father. I don’t have a problem with him liking some people more than others. It’s only natural.

        • amalfi says:

          Who said he has to be fair. I just said he isn’t.

          Glad you like him! I never asked why you shouldn’t. It’s called an opinion.

          • mkvalle says:

            Yes it is called an opinion, and we all get to have one.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            My reason for not liking Andy is that I feel that he does not respect women or families. I will not read his book, but wonder what happened to make him so nasty/evil. Was he somehow tortured in preschool by pretty little girls? EMWTK!

            • melthehound says:

              • stellastars21 says:

                I thought it meant Enquiring Minds Want To Know except that as I was typing this out I realized that enquiring is spelled inquiring. So now I’m back at the beginning and don’t know either lol.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  When I looked it up on Google, it was spelled EMWTK. ‘Enquiring minds want to know’ was also the tag line for the National Enquirer ads at one time. Enquiring is not really a word. Sorry, but I wanted to mix it up a bit regarding my IMO, ending disclaimer, and with reality TV being so dishonest, I thought it fit.

                  • Oh yeah I forgot it was spelled like that too. Ok that makes sense. After I thought I spelled it wrong I was trying to figure out what it could be lol. You are totally right that it does fit.

  7. trudie says:

    Happy, happy day LizzieLou. May it be fabulous from beginning to end!

  8. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday LizzieLou! Not sure why Andy is even doing the interview with JZ. He is just opening a can of worms IMHO.

  9. RealHousewifeVA says:

    Good morning all, I didn’t get to read all the comments yesterday so if this has been already asked I apologize, but are the Gorga’s getting a spinoff? Joe tweeted that it’s coming..and I really hope this means they won’t be on HW anymore *crossing fingers*

    • I couldn’t see any real gossip about that in the internetsphere. I can’t stand reading through Joey’s twitter timeline. He’s a pig. I have my limits for what I’ll do for this blog LOL.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        LOL I don’t blame you, his ‘humor’ is not my style and I’m convinced Melissa’s sisters tweet for him sometimes. They are all so gross. But someone told him he needs a spinoff and he replied that ‘it’s coming” and how funny it’s going to be…because, you know, we are all 10 years old and think “tarzan” jokes are hilarious.

      • NMD, THANK YOU for not reporting whatever JoGo tweets. You are doing an awesome job, muah!

    • Powell says:

      Spin-off. Whatever. I won’t be watching.

    • Winston says:

      They are delusional if they think people would watch a Gorga reality show. The only reason they have been watched on RHNJ is because people were curious to see who Teresa’s family was and what their intentions were. Having now seen that, I have no interest in them whatsoever.
      I would, however, love to see Teresa get her own show and the Gorga’s get their own show and have them on in the same timeslot. Then let’s see which show does best.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I think they are talking about a spin off because people are talking about Teresa having a spin off. The game is very matchy/matchy, ready to wear. Whatever Teresa has, or is about to get, Melissa and Little Angel Joey want and must have. Tiresome, much! IMO.

      • Sus says:

        I think they should put the 4 of them in a mudpit and fight it out. Whoever is left standing gets the spinoff

  10. AZGirl says:

    RR is right about Melissa putting the “alleged” comment about Antonia out in the media. Once again Mel is caught in one of her lies.

    • Rebecca says:

      No way in hell – not a single chance in hell did Teresa call Antonia ugly. It never, never happened.

      I can’t watch this woman on my tv screen anymore.

      (sorry for the double post)

    • amalfi says:

      Antonia looks too much like Teresa and Melissa (weird, that – but I see it; she is part Gorga, part Marco after all) for Teresa to ever have called her ugly.

      Could T be capable of saying that some agencies only hire ugly models once maybe if her Gia was rejected somewhere – yeah, I could totally see that if it happened. I also see Melissa spinning every comment to make herself the victim. She is fond of doing that, but not good at being convincing about it.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Exactly, Teresa might have made a comment about ‘ugly kids’ but there is no way, I beleive she called Antonia ugly or was trying to infer that she is.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I started out as shocked but then I think of the baptism and how low they were willing to go on that day and the only thing I can do is shake my head.

  11. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I loved how on Teresa’s blog she tweeted Lysa’s tweet about how this has been going on for 8 years, and then right after she posted Lysa’s facebook comment from the summer of ’09 about how they were staying with Teresa at her shore house and having a great time! HA! Then Lysa tells someone she was close with Teresa, then she wasn’t. Umm, make up your mind, either this was going on since you guys met Teresa 8 years ago, or it wasn’t! And judging from the fact that you spent time with Teresa at her shore house just the summer before Melissa got on the show, I’d say it wasnt. The Marco sisters are the biggest bunch of liars, it’s unreal.

    • PJ says:

      In my opinion Melisa made a calculated move when she came on this show and decided to target Teresa. It’s obvious to me that her family and JoGo were in on it thinking that they would ride Melissa’s coat tails into that 38 million mansion. The sad thing is that if Melissa had gone about this in a different way and maybe made Teresa her ally, she could perhaps have gotten what she wanted from being on this show. Melissa does have a modest talent, but those who have made it in the industry with a talent as modest as Melissa’s have a personality that attracts people, Melissa doesn’t. Melissa’s lies are so transparent and make her look so calculating and scheming and downright mean that in my opinion it backfired on her. The innocent act wears thin with Melissa. All just my opinion and based on watching Melissa in action.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I loved the way Teresa did that too. Why would Melissa’s sister, Lysa, tweet something POSITIVE about Teresa when Teresa allegedly had been “torturing” (Melissa is SUCH a DRAMA QUEEN! LOL) her sister, Melissa, for 8 years?

      It simply does NOT add up. Melissa is lying about that too (the same way she lied about Teresa refusing to invite her to any event that BRAVO was taping. It’s not Teresa’s fault that BRAVO chose to cut Teresa’s pointing Joey out and saying sweet words about him and asking him to come up and stand near the microphone with her so she could proudly show him off at her Housewarming Party. Unless Teresa is BLIND, I’m sure she saw Melissa standing RIGHT NEXT TO Joey when she pointed him out. It’s not her fault BRAVO decided to cut them out of the episode. *Shrug*).

  12. RealHousewifeVA says:

    In case anyone hasn’t seen it, AllaboutTRH has an interview up with Teresa:
    http://www.allabouttrh.com/allabouttrh-exclusive-teresa-says-chris-has-cheated-on-jac-talks-her-family-and-more/

    • Rebecca says:

      I totally believe the Caroline calling Jacqueline a bad mother story. It was explained that Jacqueline punched Caroline for calling her a bad mother.

      I also believe that Caroline called a posse meeting to plot how to get Danielle off the show, and then another to get Teresa off the show. She’s just too stupid to realize Danielle got herself booted off the show. But what more would you expect from the Manzos – who brought you brown sauce, black water, and cacaface beauty products.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        The geniuses.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        I think Caroline’s silence when Teresa said that Jac told her how Chris cheated, spoke volumes. For someone who freaked out when Teresa said Nicolas and Audriana used to be bf/gf, she sure lost her voice when her brother was accused of being a cheater. Makes sense to me now why she’s always quick to defend Juicy Joe…he knows too much.

        I think the whole family knew that Jac shared way too much info with Danielle (because that’s what Jac does) and that’s why they needed Danielle gone. That’s also why they were so scared when it seemed like Danielle was being brought back with the Melissa drama, they were terrified of Bravo giving her a platform again. Isn’t Danielle the one who first exposed how Jac punched Caroline? Obviously Jac has a BIG MOUTH if she told Danielle about that.
        I think Dina’s distance with Caroline has more to do with JACQUELINE than Teresa.

        Caroline knows Jac probably shared too much info with Teresa and wants her gone now, too. The amount of time Caroline spent making sure Jac stayed away from Teresa and the amount of times Chris has been lurking in the background during Jac’s scenes, also spoke volumes.

        I don’t think Chris is as innocent as he seems. Even in the preview clips, he looks guilty when he’s talking about how him and Jac met. Jac is screaming at him “Joe said you said you met me as a stripper!” almost as if she’s threatening him like ‘You better watch what you say!”. Probably ever since she caught him cheating, she’s had his balls in a vice. And now with this whole bankruptcy stuff, they do not want to piss off Jac.

        I NEVER buy the whole “Oh look how perfect our marriage looks on TV” charade that all these women try to sell. Look how that worked out for ALL the DC ladies, Tamra/Simon, Nene/Greg, Lisa Wu/Ed, DeShawn and her husband, and countless other HWs who portrayed a perfect marriage and are now divorced or seperated.

        • Orson says:

          Heck, even Sheree’s, Sonja’s, and Taylor’s divorces didn’t work out as well as they wanted.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I totally agree with everything you just said. It was VERY out-of-character for Caroline to NOT start screaming and lose her damned mind when Teresa said Jac told her that Chris cheated on her in the past.

          She just sat there….UNUSUALLY QUIET (In my opinion, it’s because: 1) She knows that Teresa said is TRUE and/or 2) She does not want HER marriage and any possible mistress(es) of HER husband discussed. She damned near looked around and whistled and hummed a tune the way people do when they want to avoid a conversation and tune someone out. It’s like the cat got her tongue (which I wish he would have done MORE of this past season), and she no longer had the ability to speak (or to SHRIEK).

          Oh, and Jac is a LOOSE CANNON whose form of currency is INFORMATION — that she gained in confidence from a friend or family member, and depending on what kind of mood she is in that MINUTE, she will spill all over Twitter, her blog, town, the nation and as a “secret source” to bloggers (Never mind that she may, like many UNSTABLE people, twist and exaggerate and/or lie about said information to suit her agenda!).

          Somebody, PLEASE 5150 Jac and get her the help she needs so she can take care of poor Nicholas. He seems like SUCH a DEAR!

        • AZGirl says:

          Jac screaming at Chris was frightening. She was literally screaming in his face like a mad woman. Jac is totally nuts.

    I didn’t watch RHOC – don’t find those ladies compelling – and I know nothing of this Brooks guy beyond what I read here. But, what I find surprising in that story is that 20/20 would bother w/a story like this. I thought that they did deeper investigation on actual news stories. When did they get into tabloid journalism?

    • Lady C…IMHO, they have jumped the shark just like Oprah has. They all want the ratings and have succumbed to reality tv interviews and “news” pieces. Some of the people Oprah has been interviewing to try to save her failing network has really surprised me. I don’t know what can be considered a straight up news show/mag anymore.

      P.S. I used to work for a major studio in CA. It is not pretty behind the scenes with keeping up with ratings/$$$. Integrity? Not so much.

      • Powell says:

        Well we used to have 20, 25 channels, I don’t know the actual numbers but now we have hundreds of channels. A LOT of competition. Not an excuse. Just a fact.

      • disgrazia4 says:

        The news on PBS is as old school as I have seen. It quietly gives a full report on the days events.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          20/20 has always had a blend of hard and soft news. From celebrity profiles to human interest stories to hard breaking news. The show has seemed to be about pop culture as much as the news of the day. I found the Brooks piece beneath tabloid, but not a big surprise. JMHO.

          • disgrazia4 says:

            True. I did first learn about the Russians invading Afghanistan from a 20/20 news story. But times have changed. Most news organizations are owned by mega-corporate interests. All part of the second guilded age, historically speaking.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              I have many issues with the way that news is delivered to the world, and by whom. The word news story has taken on a whole new meaning, far more literal, with more power on the word story. Those who control the power/money, control the story and there fore history, until 50 years later when a real truth comes out. JMHO.

    • amalfi says:

      I want my news sources to be different than my gossip sources. I agree that Brooks was not 20/20 worthy – what were they even thinking?

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      I have no interest in the OC ladies. Even now, Slade’s son Grayson had brain surgery and Gretchen is on Facebook making it about her “For those of you who ask me if I ever get sad or down, now is one of those times”> B*tch, this isn’t about you! You are just the deadbeat daddy’s famewhore girlfriend. Sit down.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Well, it has nothing to do with her when it comes to helping “the love of her life,” Slade, pay some of his back child support for Grayson.

          It has EVERYTHING to do with her when she can EXPLOIT poor Grayson and his illness for sympathy, publicity and/or a storyline.

    • melthehound says:

      When did they get into tabloid journalism?
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

      When they learned that no one actually cares about the news stories. Sensationalism sells ad space. Exactly what is sensational about Brooks? I have No idea.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Making money and garnering ratings – IMO, we are not all as dumb as they think but instead of demanding change we simply change our channels.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING sensational about Brookes. Stevie Wonder can see that. Too bad Vicky, in her desperation and in her feeling that she is only VALID if she has a MAN in her life, cannot see it. Then again, maybe it’s NOT too bad. I think Brookes is actually the man Vicky just might DESERVE.

    So Teresa is on the cover of in touch again! The headline? Teresa’s husband hits on Melissa! This should be good….summary after 12! Yay magazine Wednesday!

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      LOL! I really think that now In Touch is just totally playing up this whole magazine drama with these ridiculous cover titles. haha

    • amalfi says:

      In what planet do people think T plants stories. They have never been nice to her. In my opinion, they made nice with T, paid her for some pretty pics and told her “here hold this dog” and then trash her at every opportunity.

      Who thinks Teresa is winning here or responsible for the stories? Only Caro, Jac and Melissa. The negative stories (I don’t want to be poor, I’ll leave Joe if he cheats, Joe hits on Melissa) are NOT put out by her – another falsehood perpetuated by the toil and trouble wenches.

      • scorpiosue1102 says:

        I don’t think Teresa plants many stories but she has copped to answering their questions i.e. does she want a baby boy. That said, I think ALL of them have planted some story at one time or another.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          The way it has been explain. The anger is not really about Teresa’s book or the magazine covers. It is about filming 2 seasons back to back and the cast seeing things they did not like on season 3 and not really being able to talk freely about them on season 4. I think when Caroline tells the viewer to read between the lines, she really means the timeline for both shows. If we only cared that much about her narrative or her point of view. JMHO.

      • kit9 says:

        Of course those stories were put out by Teresa! She posed for the covers and gave the interviews for two of those ‘negative’ stories that you cite. The ‘I don’t want to be poor’ and how she’d leave Joe if he was cheating were direct quotes from Teresa. Obviously, if she didn’t like how the stories turned out, she’d have stopped posing for their covers. Any publicity is good publicity to Teresa.

        • 2Stupid says:

          But what does it matter to the other ladies? I don’t get it. If she says something bad about them, she kind of has a right at this point. I don’t even like Teresa, but after hearing how she caused everything form global warming to the current deficit, it doesn’t bother me if she wants to throw her own mud at them. I don’t get what she has done that deserves the viscirol she gets from them. Being totally self-consumed, annoying but not worth disowning your sister over. Always one-upping, again annoying, but not worth the amount of hate she gets. My family does these things to me all the time, and I just roll my eyes and think to myself “whatever.” I wouldn’t try and any cost to steal thier livelihood and make everyone that knows them lose respect. My thought is they can do that well enough on their own. Again, I don’t think Teresa is a model person, but I don’t think she deserves this level of hate, especially from her only brother.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I agree. Teresa CAN be annoying (although still INEXPLICABLY compelling, interesting and entertaining). That does not make her the Antichrist.

  15. Constance says:

    Tre in magazine again

    Calls Kathy and husband moochers “They’re such moochers and users and it’s really sad.”

    Doubles down on her version of the Kathy/Rosie relationship “Kathy didn’t want her sister around her kids because she was gay and because she had a girlfriend at the time”

    • Powell says:

      T shouldn’t even go there. Go on w/her life, businesses and stop doing articles about her extended family. Non of the ” talk behind my back” can stop if they all keep fueling the fire. If it was me I’d be tired.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        And Mel should go sing her heart out everywhere and anywhere, that’s what most people who are passionate about singing, do. The focus is usu on their voices, well, unless you’re Chris Brown and Rhianna.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I know. As for THOSE 2 (Rihanna & Chris), people should just leave them alone and let them get back together and KILL each other if they want. I don’t know why everybody is so PRESSED!

          I mean, hey, they found love in a hopeless place (They both probably blew each other’s back out sexually too. They do have a lot in common with their careers as well)! I LOVE that song AND that video. Notice how the guy in the video looks a little like Chris (only MUCH better)? I think Rihanna was thinking of her relationship with Chris when she made this video.

          If they don’t kill each other, hopefully, Rihanna will get out of her foolishness by the time she hits 30. Then again, some women get “STUCK on STUPID”! If they LIKE it, I LOVE it!! *Shrug* (Just don’t come crying to ME about it. “Ain’t nobody got time fa dat!!” — especially DETOX!! I feel like Caroline Manzo when I refer to myself in the 3rd person like I just did.).

          • LaineyLainey says:

            They are both so talented and beautiful. Great video, great song ITA!!

          • I like this song too, but it is disturbing. As you watch the video, notice all the drug references….pills “popping” on the screen, lighting up 5 roofies together, etc. This is a relationship fueled by drugs and sexual attraction. Uplifting love? Not so much. They do have some fun, getting high – the proverbial sex, drugs, & rock n roll. The apartment gets more trashed as the video progresses. At the end, the guy is passed out on the floor, the apartment littered with trash & in shambles. Rihanna comes in, looks around, then tries to get some stuff out of a chest of drawers. The guy tries to grab her leg, she shakes him off. Exit Rihanna, door slams, video done.

            Rihanna has a beautiful voice, but there is a “tear” or a sadness in her voice too. I’ve read about Rihanna being in Hawaii, one of the most beautiful places on earth, all by herself. Smoking weed in public, not caring who sees her. Sad. She has so much, but the one thing that would really make her happy – somebody to love – eludes her.

    • PJ says:

      Constance: I believe that is true of Kathy and her husband especially based on how horrible Kathy was at the reunion. As to the Rosie & Kathy relationship I believe Teresa is telling the truth about that too.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Me too.

        I can see Richie & Kathy being mooches, especially with the way Rich went off on a local retailer for whom he agreed to do an advertisement. When Rich pulled this “diva” move, Kathy had only been a housewife for about…oh…I don’t know….ALL OF 5 MINUTES!!!! And Rich wasn’t even a housewife in Season 3 (He and Joey did not become HOUSEWIVES until Season 4. It’s too bad Wendy Williams did not grant their request for an interview of JUST THE TWO OF THEM! There’s also BONUS information about TERESA doing magazine covers and answering questions about HERSELF, as opposed to slamming her co-stars. That cute puppy is even shown. Reality Tea said Teresa was using her daughters to gain sympathy. I wonder who told them that. *Cough* Someone whose name rhymes with “Smackelyn” wrote in one of her blogs how people were only buying Teresa’s products because they felt sympathy and pity for her. *Cough* B*llsh*t!! *Cough* People buy Teresa’s stuff because it is ALLEGEDLY good! *Cough* Interesting how Jac mentioned the sympathy angle in her blog after this story came out. *Cough* 2 +2 = 4 = JacDaniels/JacAss!! :-D).

        http://www.realitytea.com/2011/07/20/store-owner-slams-real-housewives-of-nj-kathy-wakiles-husband-rich/

        With regard to Teresa possibly telling the TRUTH about the state of Kathy & Rosie’s relationship and the effect of Rosie’s sexuality on same, Closet Freak noted how Rosie went ALL THE WAY AROUND AFRICA AND CHINA AND STILL COME RIGHT BACK TO NEW JERSEY without actually answering the question: “How did KATHY react when you came out?” (Thank you, Closet Freak. I missed that the first time I watched Part 2!). She basically talked about how difficult her struggle was and how her MOTHER reacted at first, but she did not really ANSWER the question about Kathy’s INITIAL reaction.

        • Constance says:

          Not quite sure what point you’re making about Tre answering questions about herself. Teresa is the one quoted making comments about Kathy and Rosie.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            My point is that the articles where Teresa herself actually answered questions that everybody was screaming about during Season 4 involved HER strictly talking about HERSELF and HER situation. Any negative comments about her castmates were taken from things those cast mates themselves ACTUALLY SAID on the show.

            All of the other articles I read about Teresa during the time period when Season 4 was filming were articles that were very NEGATIVE TOWARD AND BASHED Teresa. I doubt that SHE put those out herself.

            Now that Teresa KNOWS how her family and friends really felt about her and were stabbing her in the back the whole time, some of her earlier “bets” (about NOT speaking extensively and negatively about former friends and family members) are off. It still looks to me like Teresa is TRYING to do her best to hold back on that. It’s like she is RESPONDING TO and REACTING TO the allegations now being lobbied in the magazines (and on the Reunion, which is just now being shown), as opposed to just appearing in a magazine to ignite and spread NEW rumors and allegations.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      Moochers and users? Really? When you have a HUGE bankruptcy, which has now become one big ‘ol bill for them to pay, you really have no right to call anyone else a moocher.

      How do we know that Teresa is correct on why Kathy didn’t want her kids around Rosie? Because she says so……Rosie says this girlfriend was taking her down the wrong path. Was it drugs, alcohol, violence? I know I sure wouldn’t want my kids around a drug addict or alcoholic. Did Kathy say these things, infer it, or did T guess?

      • melthehound says:

        Either way, Rosie acknowledged the ‘bad’ girlfriend and did indeed say it caused friction between she and her sister. I’m going to bet that if K thought the GF was bad for Rosie, there would indeed be a need to keep her (then younger) kids away from it as well.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          The quote about Kathy and Rosie is nothing new. It reads to me like it was taken from the show. It would not be the first time the magazine has done this. JMHO.

      • PJ says:

        Yes really I do believe that Kathy and her husband are moochers and users.

      • amalfi says:

        She is not in bankruptcy anymore. She still owes her creditors.

        And yep, calling Kathy a mooch is not that nice. Teresa should really be much nicer to others than they have been to her – regardless. All the time. Like ALWAYS. It is expected and she will be stoned if she isn’t. You’d think she’d learn, right?

        lol… they are all such pillars of piety and virtue.

        Also, Kathy’s husband is a worm. Teresa’s is no prize either.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I too wish Tre was nicer. I don’t think anyone else deserves it, but I do wish she would be classier about her confrontations and reactions to these people. yes, I want her to be superhuman, I admit.

        • PJ says:

          Considering what Kathy said at the reunion I think calling her a mooch is nice compared to what she could be called.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Also, I know very NICE people who were FORCED to file bankruptcy due to astronomical medical bills that their insurance refused to cover. These people did NOT want to do this. They were both working (and had been hard-working all of their lives); however, there is no way they would have been able to survive without the bankruptcy protection offered to them due to these astronomical (and, IMO, “higway robbery charges”) medical bills. It was devastating and demoralizing for them to have to do this.

        They are IN NO WAY moochers.

        Maybe Teresa and Joe ARE moochers, and this is why they filed for bankruptcy protection. Or maybe the real estate business went belly up, and they were forced (like many OTHER people) to file because of that. Or maybe they filed because, INSTEAD OF being MOOCHERS and USING people to GET STUFF FOR FREE they PAID for things instead (And they unwisely OVERSPENT, thinking the Real Estate business was always going to be booming!). *Shrug*

        I knew a guy in college who would always want to organize “barbecues” at OTHER people’s houses so we “can all hang out and bond.” It was not too long before people noticed how he — the usual originator of the “Let’s have a barbecue!” idea — would only bring 1 (Yes, I said ONE [1]!!!) pack of weenies to these barbecues!!

        Everybody ELSE was bringing packs of chicken, steak, alcohol, lots of side items, etc. to these BBQ’s, and his ass was getting away with ONLY bringing 1 damned pack of weenies!! His bills were always paid. He drove a nice car. He dressed nicely. He took one of my girlfriends/first college roommate/still good friend to this day out on a date to Shoney’s where they SPLIT a spaghetti dinner (WHAT.A.BALLER.AND.A.CHARMER!!!!). When she came back and told me that sh*t, after I finished LAUGHING at her A*S (and making HER laugh about it too), I told her to never go out with his MOOCHING, CHEAP ass again!

        And the BBQ’s ended when, one day in my 1st official boyfriend’s apartment, this dude brought up the idea of another damned BBQ and got thoroughly CALLED OUT and CUSSED OUT by my then-boyfriend and his roommate for the scheme he was pulling.

        He never mentioned another one again (at least not to US) after THAT!! Now, HE was a REAL MOOCH!!

        JACKASS!! (I wonder what he is doing now. Oh, and he used to “process” his hair too so it could be straight and LIE about it all the time. Maybe that’s ANOTHER place some of his money went, the HAIR SALON — in addition to the WEENIES!! *Shrug*).

        • Constance says:

          If you think charging $100,000 on credit cards and not paying the bill as having PAID for it. …Not paying a fertility clinic $12,000 as having paid for it. The bank foreclosing on their house for a huge loss as having PAID for it….then I guess Teresa paid for things.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Constance, please refer to the very FIRST (1st) sentence of my THIRD (3rd) paragraph/block of my comment: “Maybe Teresa and Joe ARE moochers, and this is why they filed for bankruptcy protection.”

            If you go back and read my comment carefully, you will see that I provided a LIST of options when it came to why Joe and Teresa filed for bankruptcy — INCLUDING the possibility that they filed because they were “moochers” (as in did NOT pay for things).

            I NEVER came to a definitive CONCLUSION or OPINION as to WHY they filed for bankruptcy protection. I speculated (like many others do on this blog).

            Thank You.

          • PJ says:

            If they are paying their bills now then they ARE paying for these things. The bankruptcy was withdrawn so if they weren’t paying their creditors then their creditors would be coming after them. If their creditors were coming after them it would be all over the place.

            • amalfi says:

              thank you for getting that point.

              • PJ says:

                I don’t understand why this is even a difficult point for people to get. People go on and on about Teresa and Joe’s bankruptcy, which has been withdrawn. But gloss over Jac and her husband’s bankruptcy, which has not been withdrawn. If what is written about the Laurita’s bankruptcy can be believed then it seems to me to be much more serious than Teresa and Joe’s. People just want a reason to hate on Teresa and don’t want to understand.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  Maybe that is why Chris was so uncomfortable with Joe Guidice calling him shady behind his back. The truth hurts. IMO.

          • djprincessc says:

            Is Constance talking about Jaq and Chris bankruptcy?? lol. Probably not because they owe like 55 million.

        • PJ says:

          Bankruptcy is a legal option people have when they are in financial trouble. Very good friends of mine had to file and they are not moochers. In my state after 9/11 the construction industry went belly up and never fully recovered to this day. Many honest, hardworking people found themselves in financial trouble due to no fault of their own, people who never had any trouble like that their whole lives. It kind of bothers me when people go on about bankruptcy as if people having to file are evil. It simply is not always the case. Most people want to pay their bills and will if they can, yes there are exceptions people who run up bills and never intend to pay but not everyone is like that.

Unfortunately he forgot how disgusting he is and that he’s family. This guy would hit on a fire hydrant if he was drunk enough. Remember rules don’t apply to this cretin.

        You know WCW ANY man with a pulse would look at an attractive woman with short shorts. Yes I said ANY MAN! Like ChrisRock says to the woman that says ‘Not my Man”, “Yes Bitch!..You’re Man Too!”. As long as they don’t break their necks to do so, it’s all gravy. Also, some men find it a compliment to know that others are admiring their wife. It lets the husband know they’ve got GradeA and they have to step it up and keep it sizzling.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Well, in Chris’s defense, she was wearing an underwear with her buttcheeks hanging out, I’d expect any man to look.

        But she clutches her pearls at the idea of being a dancer at a gentlemen’s club 😉

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Well if Guidice could hit on Melissa, she is just as capable of hitting on him. After all, it would be like trying to take something else away from Teresa.

          • kit9 says:

            • Amber...Real Wife says:

              Agreed Tre is the one trying to end the Gorga marriage. Also seeing as Juicey is probably a sick effer, wouldn’t it be like and aphrodisiac to sex up his wife’s friends and her mortal enemy the younger, prettier SIL? Like NiecyNash says… Eh…Eh?

    • PJ says:

      Oh please… remember when Teresa told Melissa she was creeped out by Richie? She said he seemed obsessed with her, which IN NORMAL HUMAN SPEAK means she sick of him always needing to needle her. Melissa jumped right into “he wants to have sex with me too.”

      Scenario two: Teresa warns Melissa about stupid things people might say if she comes on the show. She says among other things “they make fun of your forehead” fully meaning it was happening to HER, and Melissa jumps into Teresa saying they will make fun of HER forehead.

      Melissa doesn’t “get it” anymore than Teresa does. Even less, because Melissa is LOOKING for ways to twist words and create a casino.

    Melissa says Teresa called her daughter ugly. Teresa says she would never say such a thing.
    I don’t know who the liar is here, but lets just say for the sake of argument that Teresa did say that. Now I believe that Melissa would throw her own child under the bus to make sure we all hate Teresa for the terrible things she says. I would rather let the public love my SIL than ever ever ever put in a magazine such a terrible thing about my daughter. No matter if it was said or not-it was never public until Melissa made it public and that is just gross. I would have preferred that she smack Teresa in the face when she said then run to US weekly and have them print that. What happens when her daughter hears this? All it will do is make the kid feel shi*ty about herself.
    These people need to keep what happens off camera to themselves b/c Im sure they are guilty of ugly behavior.
    Who the hell sold the story to In Touch about Joe hitting on Melissa? Im going to go out on a limb and say Teresa can not be blamed for that….right?

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      You know what, I just wish for once we would actually SEE Teresa saying and doing all these things they accuse her off.
      Teresa supposedly said Melissa was a stripper.
      Teresa supposedly said Antonia is ugly.
      Teresa supposedly twisted Melissa’s arm.

      All Melissa talks about is what Teresa supposedly said or did. It’s getting old.

      • melthehound says:

        I would be interested in seeing that as well. Beyond someone here telling me it happened. Of course, very few can ever come up with proof about what happens on these shows so I’m not very hopeful about it happening now.

    • PJ says:

      I don’t think for one second that Teresa would ever or did ever say that about Antonia. This is my problem with Melissa saying things like this, if my SIL in law ever said that about my daughter you can bet I would never put it out there for the world to know about because it would only hurt my daughter. It would actually crush my daughter and that is something I could never do, nor could any good mother. Melissa putting this out there says a lot more about her than it does about Teresa.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Well just like Melissa said “You don’t get to be the victim!! I’m the victim!! Don’t you get it, that’s what this is all about, I am supposed to play the role of the victim, stop ruining it for me!!” (Okay, maybe that last part was embellished 😉 ) Since it didn’t work for her and Teresa’s fans stayed Teresa fans, now she has to do her “Victim Melissa Tour 2012” to try and convince everyone.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        PJ-that is exactly how I see it-If Melissa could sell a story about her own daughter to make Teresa look bad-what does that say about her? Never mind if it is true or not. It doesn’t even matter if anyone believes Teresa and her blog-Melissa put it out there….for what?????? If we are to believe everything that Melissa, Kathy ,Caroline and Jac say then Teresa is already a horrible person-what is the point of throwing this in some stupid magazine?

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Bringing my comment down from up thread..

          There is no way beleive it mainly because it doesn’t make any sense.
          Melissa tells Teresa that Antonia was signed to a modeling agency and Teresa says “they always pick the ugly ones”? Isn’t Gia also signed to an agency? Does that make her ugly.

          What I could see happening is Melissa saying that Antonia was signed and Teresa saying how hard it is to get booked and snarking that ‘they always pick the ugly ones’.

          But no way do I beleive it happened the way Melissa said it happened.

          And even if it did, Melissa is an idiot for repeating it. Now not only is out there for Antonia to see one day but there are deranged Melissa fans running around the net saying that it’s Teresa’s kids that are ugly among other things. probably They are also fueled by Melissa’s awful statement that she would never have her kids in the same school as Teresa’s (regardless of being a lie, it is still damaging). Melissa practically gave her following the green light to her following to go after little kids. I think it’s pretty vile and disgusting.

          Melissa claims that Teresa was calling her stipper and a gold digger behind her back yet calls her child (Teresa’s own God daughter) ugly to her face? Didn’t happen….no fn way.

            And RR why is Mel signing Antonia up for modeling? Did Antonia ask to do it or us it cause Mel is again copying what T did w/Gia? Shhhhheessssh! These people are morons!!!

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I would also bet money she used the same photographer that Teresa selected for Gia.

              Powell I think your great but I guess every parent that ever thought they had a cute, talented kid is copying off of Tre when they sign them to an agency? Can a infant or a toddler ask their parent to take them to an agent? My newphew one a beauty pageant as an infant and RealSis was encouraged to sign him to an agency which she wanted to until they started asking for hundreds in pics and fees. SCAMMERS.

              • melthehound says:

                I think most parents who think they have cute talented kids, are delusional. On TV or not.

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                LOL My NEPHEW WON not newphew one. LOL This one really tickled me because who was the original pioneer that decided to make their kid a star? ShirleyTemple’s mom? But now anyone in the Gorga clan and FranklinLakes/Montville is copying Tre&Gia. I love it!

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I think Powell was more hinting at since the whole ‘she copies me’ started Melissa has not only been making a point to use some of the same people Teresa does, but then gets them to bash Teresa on camera. (e.g. the stylist) .
                Melissa is defiantly a one upper in that regard.

                • Amber...Real Wife says:

                  I read it that Mel was copying her signing her daughter to an agency. Tre doesn’t own that monopoly even if she’s got 4 and counting. Some people want that for their children.

                  I once met a beautiful, young Mom with a son who had DownSyndrome. She said she always wanted to have a baby and had planned out the childs life. She wanted the baby to be a model, do pageants become an actor etc. She felt that God had taken her down because she was so self-centered and arrogant. Now she just wanted a ‘normal’ life for him and was very involved in church.

                  • Powell says:

                    Amber that is what I meant. No T doesn’t have a license at signing her daughter to a modeling agency but Mel so feels the need to do so much of what T does and wears. Mel copies T. If Mel had any interest in writing cookbooks she’d do that too. Because T has eyes on her for many things she does I think Mel wants those same eyes on her.

                    • Amber...Real Wife says:

                      Unfortunately I don’t see the copying of everything. They lived in a area where i’m sure they and many other locals visited the same boutiques, shoe stores, beauty salons etc. Sure they have cars and can travel but what for? What if they were both given great feedback of certain vendors and decided to use them too?

                      Also many moms of attractive children want to try to get them into modeling/acting careers even before the children can speak and have free will. What parent with spare change wouldn’t want their children to take dance, music, gymnastics, karate, soccer, volleyball etc. Instead of Tre thinking Mel is constantly copying her, she should think “how wonderful that my neice and nephews have so many opportunites too”. But then again this is RHONJ.

          • kit9 says:

            First, doubt T hasn’t called Mel a gold digger to her face. And, we know she insinuated that Mel stripped to her face with the implant comment and the way T said this about Antonia wasn’t directly, it was sneaky and, after saying it and Mel balking, T probably said, ‘oh! I don’t mean Antonia! Just all the OTHER girls’. Right.

            The comment, which I absolutely believe happened given every thing we know about Teresa, is an illustration of how horrible and dishonest she is. That’s why Mel told it. Teresa loves her family and then does and says the most vicious awful things. It has to be infuriating listening to her lies about wanting a relationship with her brother. What T did to Mel with Strippergate blew away all tolerance Mel and Joe had for Teresa and covering for her and they now have every right to let people know why they have so many problems with her and call her out on her lies and hypocrisy. They are screaming THIS IS THE WOMAN WE’VE BEEN DEALING WITH. And, it won’t affect Antonia in the least, very little chance she’ll ever hear it and that little girl is so loved and the comment so patently absurd-like calling a stick thin person fat or tall person short. Will it hurt her that her aunt said such a thing..maybe, but better she get used to it because it’s going to happen again, and again. And again.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Teresa wrote a blog about this because she doesn’t want Antonia to ever think that she is ugly. Melissa can throw all the poo she wants but Teresa will always defend the children.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Jill, this move, on Melissa’s part is looking very Jacqueline-esque. Like you said, even if it’s true… Throwing your kids under the bus for sympathy. I thought only Jac did that (with Ashley), but now…I guess Mel has joined the ranks of doing whatever it takes to pander for public sympathy. WHATEVER IT TAKES, even hurting your own child in the process.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        IMO, Jac not only did that with Ashley, but she is now doing it with Nicholas. This appears to be one of her patterns.

        C.J. looks like he’s got more sense than his Mom (and Ashley) and probably REFUSES to be used in this way (I can just see him again in my mind, playing a video game with his cute little vest, shirt and tie! He’s a little cutie, and he’s so quiet. He looks like an Old Soul).

        In fact, I’m almost positive that C.J. has more sense than his crazy-ass Mom because he called her out on camera for comparing Danielle to a pig (I think he may have been around 7 at the time!!). He was probably thinking, “All I want to do is go to the pumpkin patch!! And here goes my CRAZY-ASS MAW pulling some TEENAGED b*llsh*t again — on camera, no less! God, I cannot wait until I am 18!! I am SOOOO outta my Mom & Dad’s house!! I just want a damned PUMPKIN. I don’t need to be correcting my ADULT Mother!! Jeez!!! I ain’t got time fa dat!!!”.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          LOL- I think CJ is much more like his dad than his mom. Although in a few years his correcting won’t be in the form of ‘That’s not nice’ it will probably be “Who gives a F, mind yer business.’

    • Powell says:

      Right. And you know a school mate’s parent is going to say it to their child who will then say it to Mel’s daughter. Kids have it rough enough w/teasing. Mel just keeps thinking it’s just her and Joey. Idiot.

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

  19. noreen7 says:

    Did anyone notice during NJHW Reunion 2, when Andy was asking Melissa about singing at the event shown early in the season, that Melissa commented how great it was and that “there was a lot of people there.” This was said several times by her during that particular show as well, but in reality, it seemed like there were maybe a couple of hundred people. The cameras only showed the people down front. But Melissa is going to make everyone believe she packed the place. Melissa also said that Gia has never attended one of her performances, but they both performed at that event and shared a nice moment betweent their performances. Furthermore, didn’t Teresa say last season how Joe and Melissa never showed up at Gia’s recitals, et al and how sad it made her. I always go back to Melissa’s first show on NJ, when she said in her talking head interview, “I tend to be very spoiled.” I could have vomited then and I could vomit now. I don’t like Melissa.

    • melthehound says:

      She was the closing act and most people had left by the time she went on. The stage host announcer guy had thanked everyone for coming and reminded them to drive safely on the way home. That’s what I remember. She didn’t pack the place, She emptied it.

      • djprincessc says:

        And you know what? Theirs will be 10xs worse, why? Because they made it their mission to destroy the Guidices, thats why its better that even if you HATE someone to keep your mouth shut because you never know what is going to come back to you. Melissa and Jaq keep insisting that Joe Guicide is cheating (which is more than likely true) but Teresa knows this, so stop saying it because before they both know it, THEY are going to be the ones divorcing their husbands while Teresa and Joe stick it out. Sometimes its just better to be quiet, notice even Caroline did in the last reunion about Chris cheating. Hmmmm?? I wonder why?? Probably because she knows her own husband does this so she better shut up!! lol.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          It is sad that those who choose to say unkind things do not realize what a reflection their behavior has on them as well. Respect, loyalty, honor, family and friendship are measured by our own actions – not someone elses. RHNJ is the hardest franchise to watch because nothing is sacred.

          • ATLnNYC09 says:

            You know how I know Lauren’s make up skills are horrid (besides looking at her own makeup)? Because NONE of the other cast mates (except Caroline) go to her to get their make up done. Not Jac, not Kathy, not Melissa, not Teresa (for obvious reasons). None of them. Why wouldnt they go to Lauren, who owns a beauty bar? Who would probably do their make up for the fraction of the cost any of those make up artists would do? Because she sucks.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              She really, really sucks at make up but you know what I would love, is for Tabitha Coffy to go into CaCa face and set her straight.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Lauren always looks GREASY to me.

              • djprincessc says:

                The whole Manzo family looks dirty to me!! Greasy and sweaty. I would LOVE Tabitha to go in and just give it to her!! lol

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I agree. The only one who doesn’t look greasy to me is Albert (the father). Maybe the water is better at cleaning the grime and dirt off at the Brownstone Apartment or at his alleged mistress’ (Jill’s) house than the house where Caroline and kids live (They must have the same water supply system at the boys’ apartment too. I have not seen the greasy situation improve since they moved). *Shrug*

                  I would LOVE to see Tabitha rip Lauren a new one by examining her salon with a fine-tooth comb. I can see Tabitha ripping Lauren a new one because Lauren strikes me as being incredibly immature, LAZY, not very personable (which helps in business), kinda dumb and not CURIOUS (as in has no desire to learn new things. People in the beauty business probably have to constantly update their knowledge and skills. I don’t see her being into that, seeing as how she said herself she does NOT like to read and seeing as how she could not even read a road sign when they were on their way to Napa.).

      • Well since Mel likes to copy Teresa, maybe this is just another way. Lol I mean it has worked for Teresa cause she does that except for the BLK part 🙂

        Sorry I couldn’t resist. Not because I’m pro/anti Mel or pro/anti Teresa but just cause I thought it funny. I know you were calling them all out.

    • Powell says:

      Wow Mel and Joe can lie. If you’re going to lie may I suggest buying a spiral note book to write you lies so you can keep track of them. Dies anyone remember the Seinfeld episode where Jerry writes down a bunch of excuses to use when a guy that wants to be his friend( Michael Chicklas) played the guy and wanted Jerry to go to Nicks games w/him? The Gorga’s better write down those lies. They know good and well they illegally moved into the spec house as it was under construction so that Bravo would think they were wealthy. Bravo’s research dept needs to be fired. They need to hire this group. Bravo wouldn’t have hired a quarter of the HWs if they had us as their research dept. And I don’t know what Mel constitutes a balloon because when you have a construction loan when it’s due the whole balance is due, hence balloon payment, that why you gave to get approved for a mortgage. She’s an idiot.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      I totally believe Joe cheats on Teresa (and all the other husbands have probably cheated as well) but I don’t think those pictures show proof of anything, IMO. That looks like a cocktail waitress and doesn’t even look like Joe (to me) Where are the pics of her sitting on his lap, walking to the car with him, or doing anything remotely resembling cheating? Doesn’t make sense if they were able to take all those (extra blurry) pics why they couldn’t get one that was questionable?

      • BB says:

        I just wonder who this person fomr Georgia is that apparently saw it. Lol. No doubt all of the NJ men have cheated. Well, maybe not Richie.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I beleive Joe cheats on Teresa too.

        But I don’t know if that is what I saw in those pictures. I saw a smear talking to a head of hair. I also saw the smear get into the cab. I also wonder how the photographer heard the smear allegedly say “Life is good” as he got into the cab when it looks like she was 100 feet away and still inside the casino doors. I can’t even tell if the head of hair was in the cab.

        • melthehound says:

          If these people really want their stories to be believable, they should invest some cash into a camera capable of taking photos in low light. Rosie whateverhernamis has now had her 3 seconds of fame as a photojournalist. If what she says she saw was what she saw, Why not make video of it, complete with sound? Of course, last I checked, and I know this has little to do with it, most casinos prohibit taking photos in the casino area. I’m sure however some will see JoeGui plain as the blurred noses on their own faces in those shitty pictures. Maybe, ‘Rosie’ is Jac’s imaginary ‘mutual friend’. Could it be? Probably not, she has no friends. Not before the noon opening of the Bailey’s bottle anyway.

    I guess it’s a matter of interpretation. There was an episode of NJ where the women all had some sort of costume jewelry on their foreheads, both T and M were wearing not much of white spangly oufits, and T and M had an argument. Big surprise. After the argument, T was storming off into her ride accompanied by her ‘crew’ and I guess one could say that T didn’t say M had been a stripper. IIRC, what she said on camera was “I’m not saying she was a stripper. What I’m saying is there’s a rumor that she was a stripper.” Personally, I don’t think there’s much difference between calling someone a stripper and saying “there’s a rumor” or “I hear someone say”.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Orson-I agree with you. In Teresa’s mind(lets not forget we are not dealing with a genius) she never said the WORDS “Melissa was a stripper”. So she THINKS she can say “I never called you a stripper” and she would be right….but wrong?

      I think one sounds like a fact and the other two sounds like speculation. JMHO.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The third eye party convo was about getting between Melissa’s marriage – the rumor was about her leaving Joe for someone with more money that Teresa had told her brother in private. No strippers were maligned in this episode.

    There is an article on Bravo about the upcoming JZ interview and the comments on it are pretty brutal. My thought is Andy is letting her hang herself and he show her once and for all, that no one wants her back. Fingers Crossed!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      At the end of the day, WWHL rating fall on Andy – IMO, bringing JZ on is an attempt for a ratings coup, a measure of JZ’s toxicity and an opportunity for Bravo’s website to get some traffic.

      • BB says:

        eggzactly. It’s got this blog talking and speculating hasn’t it? If people really wanted JZ to go away, they’d not watch when she is on WWHL, they wouldn’t be looking at her twitter, they wouldn’t tune in when she’s a guest on any show, and they’d stop talking about her. Fact is, like her or hate her, some people love talking about her, and she loves that some people love talking aout her. Andy is doing it for one reason and one reason only – ratings for that night of WWHL. She’s fun to snark about, but I don’t watch anything she appears on because I really don’t care to hear what she has to say. If I were to mention the name Jill Zarin to 99.99% of people I know outside of this blog, they wouldn’t have a clue as to who I was talking about. Same for Andy Cohen. Maybe a few more people I know might know who he is, but very few.

        • chismosa says:

          Then I want to know WHO are these lunatics who call into WWH every night SWOONING over being able to talk to Andy. How much they adore him, LOVED his book, etc. Did his stupid book even make any best seller lists? One would think he’d be shoving that tidbit of info down our faces.

          I never understood why Andy has success on-screen at this channel, let alone the other Comcast/Universal channels. He’s up there at Bravo but I never thought he was THAT up there

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            People that work for BRAVO. The probably sit in a room near the set and just make phone calls to Andy where they make up their names and locations (I am KIDDING….but….err….in a way, NOT REALLY).

            • LaineyLainey says:

              That is so funny!!! that’s completely feasible. remember when Roz did that on Frasier sometimes…. I do love that show. I watch it and will & grace as I’m getting ready for work almost everyday.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            I wonder who ended the calls from that 13 yr old boy who used to call in-his mom or Bravo.

    Interesting interaction between Dina and her brother on twitter:

    Anthony Laurita ‏@AnthonyLaurita
    Reaching out to @dinamanzo and @chefjmelaurita for follows. Everyone else is on board and supportive. Chime in if I forgot anyone.

    Dina Manzo ‏@dinamanzo
    @AnthonyLaurita oh yes of course, since u & “everyone else on board” has been SO supportive of me!!!! ; )

    Anthony Laurita ‏@AnthonyLaurita
    @dinamanzo That’s the spirit ! I will bet that me and “everyone else on board” gets a little more supportive of each other now. Thanks!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Quite interesting…

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Anthony Laurita is named in the Signature Apparel lawsuit. Circling the wagons maybe? Sounds like Jamie and Dina want no part of it….

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      What do you guys think Dina is really saying? I can’t “read between the lines”. Somebody please help me out.

      • Rebecca says:

        It means she’s not the one who’s the problem. Caroline refuses to make up with her.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          IMO it has everything to do with Jamie’s wedding on Bravo.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Hmmm….I wonder if Caroline is the one who is honestly refusing to make up with Dina.

          When asked about the situation on WWHL, Dina did not look PRESSED at all. She was more like,”…Ummm….Yeah….I’ll talk to her…ONE DAY…like maybe if she gets into a horrible accident and winds up on the hospital or is at death’s door or something. Otherwise…UMMM….NO THANKS. I just don’t like her vibe. *Shrug*” (as she batted her big beautiful eyes and gave a big beautiful smile to Andy. I think Dina is gorgeous).

          Caroline, on the other hand, looks like it is KILLING her that Dina does not talk to her but still talks to TERESA!

          If you are correct, and it is CAROLINE that is refusing to make up, AND if Caroline is making her forgiveness conditional on Dina not having anything more to do with Teresa, then she is even more of a PSYCHOTIC CONTROL FREAK than I thought (and she needs help. She can’t go around trying to control GROWN ASS PEOPLE!!).

    Does LipSynching to music while dancing like a hoochie dressed like that make it more respectable? Serious question.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Okay that link didn’t work!

    • Orson says:

      Most pop singers who do a lot of dancing in their live acts lip sync. They did, however, sing to make the recording.

      • amalfi says:

        Most pop singers who lip sync can actually dance. lol

        Mel can’t sing, can’t dance … except maybe at a bar. (and no, I don’t mean a ballet barre)

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Maybe they should stick a pole in front of her when she sings. Maybe it would help her act.

    Hey Jeff/Melthehound:

    I wanna thank you for the laugh I had last night. I was catching up on yesterday’s blog and in the thread asking for interview questions for Aviva, you closed your comment with something like “don’t ask about the leg.” I laughed out loud so long from that. It really tickled me and like you I am OVER.IT with the leg stories. Have a great day.

    • melthehound says:

      Then I guess it’s worth repeating 😀

      Please, PLEASE, do not ask about her damn leg.

      Happy to make you laugh, Stella. Not much of that going on around her some days.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Wait, you don’t want to hear about how she lost her leg on a conveyor belt meant to clean the manure? How she screamed and screamed and the rescue personnel told her to SHUT UP (WTF? forreal?) and her dad told her to keep screaming? You don’t want to know how she has different kinds of legs for different activities? Or how she gets pedicures or buys shoes? YOU AREN’T AT ALL INTERESTED TO FIND OUT THIS INFO THAT SHE HAS NEVER SPOKEN OF? What kind of monster are you?

        • princesspindy says:

          WUT? THIS IS ALL BRAND NEW INFORMATION!!!!!

          No. We don’t want to hear about her $100,000 leg that sge doesn’t want to talk about that she couldn’t understand Ramona’s ?s about her leg. 🙂

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            LMAO!! I went to a party where this ACTUALLY happened. I sh*t you NOT!!!

            This guy with whom I went to law school invited me to a party held by an attorney for whom his girlfriend worked while she ALSO went to another law school in N.O. at night (I actually went to middle, junior & high school with both of them. I met up with them again when they were in the same city also going to law school. In fact, I even worked for his Dad — who is an attorney — one Summer BEFORE I went to law school).

            Anyhoo, this party was a BLAST!!! Several of us, including this attorney’s paralegal — who was an amputee, got rip-roaring DRUNK!!! In between all of my carousing, I looked over to see that the paralegal had taken off her leg and was allowing people to play catch with it and, yes, you guessed it — to also take a few swigs of alcohol out of it.

            That was a FUN party!! New Orleans was so much fun (before Katrina. It probably still IS fun, though. Like Zoey said, the city is filled with “characters.” If you ask me, the entire state of Louisiana is filled with “characters”!).

            My hometown friends broke up.

            And that attorney eventually got DISBARRED last I heard. *Shrug*

            • Powell says:

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                It WAS. I did not know the woman; however, she APPEARED to be the “Anti-Aviva” (as in having a personality that is the TOTAL OPPOSITE of Aviva’s).

  28. Exit4 says:

    This in touch is one of my favorites. So none of the photos are photo shoot photos and they are ones we’ve all seen before…there are 3 quotes from Teresa, all from past articles. So they are real quotes, just simply taken from previous I’m touch interviews. That is stated directly in the article. The meat of the article is about Teresa insecurities regarding joe. Hence why she always talks about their sec life, which is somewhat believable. Basically the article quotes the unnamed source close to them says that when Mel and joe started dating he would check out Melissa and flirt with her and Mel thought he was a creep. Also that joe always praised Mel’s singing, her style and that she’s a beautiful pregnant woman. The point is Teresa is threatened by Melissa and afraid her husband will lose interest in her. It acquires Teresa as saying Mel is cold and has done mean things to her.

    The sidebar illustrates Teresa’s claims about Melissa copying her. If someone compliments Mel Teresa says Mel used her stylist (accompanied by a pic of them in similar dresses and poses), it compares their houses and mentions that Teresa believes they are selling it because they can’t afford it. Them competing to be the hottest couple (with competing pics of them on the beach with their husbands) and their competing boobs. It points out that Melissa got her boobs first.

    So that’s that! Go back to Teresa cover girl blog and she does explain the whole magazine thing pretty well. As for the boobs, since Teresa for them on TV season one, its no secret! Plus I have to say, as far getting bubbie a goes, if anyone needed them it was Teresa! Remember her trying the bikinis on season 1? She was flat as a board! The boob job definitely worked for her!

    I think it was Powell who asked above about the author of the article, there isn’t one listed and I looked at other articles and didn’t see one listed either. Although in the Teresa’s breakdown article, it says she spoke with in touch news director Paola leva (im holding onto them now!) In touch and l&s don’t always have author names. People and us do. Don’t know why.

    Lastly, I saw that radar article and having been summering at that part of the jersey shore my whole life (not in ac, but right outside) I can believe joe cheats, I can believe he flirts in ac. What I don’t get is why hip a cab at 5am? You have 500 hotel rooms in Harrahs and the other places in the marina are walking distance. For those of you that aren’t familiar with ac and only know Vegas…ac is completely and totally different. There’s no strip, most outside of the casino bars shut down at 5 and there’s not much in between the marina and the boards (which are quite a distance apart) but ghetto. Seriously. Ac is very self contained as in you sort of stay where you are, which if course, is exactly how the casinos designed it! I have no doubt he cheats but that part of the story struck me as weird. But then again, locals and shoobies behave quite differently!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Does anyone else wonder why this person from Georgia was walking into the casino at 5:00 am?

    • Powell says:

      Thks for looking back at past articles Exit. It’s interesting they doesn’t say who they are written by.
      It’s been a few yrs since I’ve been to AC. After leaving the casinos I just like going down the boardwalk to the mall.

                I’ll help you, Jill. I know EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of “Good Times” by heart. I even mouth the words and everything (I can’t believe I just admitted that. Oh well….whatever helps a person make it through the day). And I STILL laugh my head off at some of the jokes even though I’ve heard them a million times.

                Since I have such a fondness for that show, and BECAUSE the Evans family called people “Jive Turkey” all the time, I’m going to SERIOUSLY help you bring it back.

                “MELISSA, as for that nasty US Magazine article about Tre calling your child ugly, YOU’SE A LIE and YOU’SE A JIVE TURKEY too!! Take that!! And you may think it WAS, but I have NEWS for you, you JIVE TURKEY witch, that article was NOT DYNE-O-MITE!!!

    So Im going to believe that Teresa never called Melissa’s daughter ugly. Im also going to believe that Teresa never “twisted” Melissa’s arm at that birthday party. If that did happen-where is this “friend” of Jac’s that SAW THE WHOLE THING IN THE PARKING LOT ?(which by the way is not where Melissa said it happened…whatever) I mean-dont you think this person would have at least TWEETED that they saw this…you know Jac and Melissa would Re-Tweet if they did!!!!

    • melthehound says:

      where is this “friend” of Jac’s
      ^^^^^

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        This “friend” is one of the many voices in Jac’s head.

        I FIRMLY believe Jac & Melissa got together before the Reunion so they could practice their “stories.” Jac always has all of this alleged “evidence” (recordings of phone calls; full, unedited texts; E-Mails) that mysteriously NEVER appear! I wonder what THAT is all about. It is quite ODD.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

  30. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Madonna/Prostitute Syndrome

    A termed attributed to Sigmund Freud who believed that men divide women into two types:
    (1) Nice girls—’Madonnas’ (who are likened to the Virgin Mary) and
    (2) Naughty girls who are overtly erotic, uninhibited and available—i.e., ‘prostitutes’

    Per Freud, men choose one woman for love and to have their children—a Madonna—and another for sex, and believe that nice girls can’t be sexy and sexy girls can’t be nice

    Tre done flipped the script yall! LOL She done went from the Madonna/nice girl to the Naughty/whore and Juicey don’t like it! It’s too much for his simian brain to comprehend folks. Her sexually over-active camera balls are probably annoying the hell out of him as she was supposed to be the good wife. So when she goes to sign books & bottles, he’s off to TGIFs, or AC to find the real thing. Allegedly.

  36. Exit4 says:

    I was reading my post above and I started laughing because I realized that even though the cab ride they write about in radar makes no sense to me-I’m forgetting that most of you have probably never been there (to ac) and have no clue what I mean! Do you ever do that? Like, when someone asks for directions and you can’t give them right because YOU know where you’re going and can’t remember names if streets. You just know where to go? Or am I nuts?!?!?

    • Exit, I really hate AC so haven’t been there in a loonnnggg time. Not surprised about the Juicy cheating rumors, just like all the Melissa rumors with stripping, private back rooms, the parking lot etc. Makes you wonder who’s flynning who, doesn’t it?

      Teresa gurl, just want you to realize…..now that you are workin’ yur AZZ off, do really want to keep a man that is gambling all your money down the terlit, and creeping around with PROSTITUTION WHORES?? Puh-leeze get it thru yer brain gurl, and dump his cheatin’ AZZ to the curb, pronto!

      • Exit4 says:

        I actually prefer AC from Post Labor Day- April when there are less tourists and crowds! You can actually get a 10 or 15 dollar table (I like Blackjack) and its easy to get a seat in the nice restaurants. Even though its a “summer house” I go down all year since my moms a year rounder now. I actually enjoy the boardwalk in the early am, even in summer-ill bike from my house, hop in the boards where they start in Margate and go all the way to the end by Revel and back. It’s a nice ride!

        I wish Teresa would dump the guy too but her pride won’t allow it!

        • Hi Exit, please be careful around AC. Have you heard about all the dead bodies found around AC? Saw a show on ID TV about it, looks like they never found the killer. Scary, right? As long as you are surrounded by people tho, you should be ok. Just promise me you will be careful!

          I’m just not a gambler, and it’s ok if other people are. I do like the shows in AC & someday I’d like to go to Vegas, just for the shows. 🙂 The saddest part about AC is the surrounding town. It’s really really bad, and dangerous. Then you get to the bright shiny hotels where they specialize in stealing your money!

                      I’ve heard from a few people I know who have gone to Nationals games when they played the Phillies that the Philly visitors were just plain rude and nasty. I’ve also seen a lot of Eagles games where the fans turn on their own team very quickly. I can see if your team is not doing well you will hear a few boos, but the fans in Philly seem to take it to the extreme. Just observations by myself and others who’ve told me things. Believe me, I was one of the loudest fans at my daughter’s college softball games, but I wasn’t obnoxious about it. If an opposing player had a good hit or catch, I cheered for them too. Just not as loudly. Lol!

                      You would go crazy at a SF Giants vs the LA Dodgers game. The SF fans HATE us. I had no idea it was as bad as I thought until I moved up there. It got nasty.

                    • lovemamaearth says:

                      Don’t forget there’s a sports section here now.

                  • Exit4 says:

                    Boo and throw snow at Santa and you never live it down…lol. Philly fans are very dedicated but can be very, very tough. You need a thick skin to play here. But I know what you’re saying, the rep precedes us. It’s a very small majority though, that takes it to the next level-it gets played up a lot in the media, but a lot if other teams fans are just as bad. When you throw snow at Santa, you’re doomed forever!

                • Exit4 says:

                  Most people forget we have a basketball team!

      Did I see what? If you’re talking Survivor, I haven’t seen any of it yet but if you want to spill, 2coolmel at rolleiman dot com (to keep from spoiling for the ones who don’t want spoilers 😉 ).

    • BB says:

      Lol. No thanks! Been there, done that.

      • lori says:

        I know this is payback for all I put my mother through. She often said she wished she could have sent me away from 7th-10th grade. I keep telling myself this too shall pass as long as we are loving but firm…sigh

    • lovemamaearth says:

      lol Tell us what happened.

      • lori says:

        Went to school open house to find out my beautiful, intelligent, sometimes sweet, sometimes sour daughter is reading books instead of paying attention to the lesson AND not handing in all her homework. Of course the teacher could have clued me in a couple weeks ago but I guess at least I know now. So now she can’t watch tv, be on the computer or play wii (or any electronics) until report cards come out in Nov…this is going to be a really looooooong month. Still no takers?? 🙂

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I’ll take her!!!! 🙂

          • lori says:

            LOL send me your address you may find her on your doorstep one day 🙂

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Oh, I MISS being a mommy and she can (obviously) read, she doesn’t wear diapers, she’s probably starting to notice fashion, she could ride her bike (circles around me) while I walk…I could drive her to dance, martial arts, art class, the library…oh, we’ll have so much fun!!!

              • lori says:

                Can’t let her read this she’ll be ASKING to move with you!! lol 🙂

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I highly doubt that, but thanks!!

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Lainey…you want a 6 year old too? She is funny as hell, eyes that are bluer than the sea, she talks back, stomps her feet, slams doors and says “Really Mom? Really? 100 times a day. She started gymnastics a few weeks ago and flips and jumps and twirls all over the damn house. She reminds of that spoiled girl from Willy Wonka-but cuter…God was smart to make her cute cause he knew the devil gave her attitude!!! She doesn’t need any clothes b/c she has a closet full of the latest fashions,skirts,dresses, sparkly sneakers…etc. Oh and she is easy to feed because she doesn’t like anything!!!!

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Ms. Feisty is right up my alley!!! She could do fashion shows for us!! I already made all of my mistakes with my own kids (my poor babies).

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      I dont think you made too many mistakes Lainey…from what I have read here you have 2(? boy and girl?) well adjusted kids…my little devil might blossom in your care!! And she will do a fashion show at any given moment…and then throw all the clothes she tried on in the laundry!!!!

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      that’s hilarious, Jill. Just like a feisty little diva, that one. 😉 super sweet age.

              • lovemamaearth says:

                ROFL at you two. ((( Lori ))) Sorry for the troubles. Yes the teacher should have called you. Give her your email address. 🙂

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Lori-I did read your post right didnt I? You said she was READING BOOKS instead of paying attention in class? At least she is reading!!! Even though it might not be the reading she is supposed to be doing!!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      LOL, Lori! I started going gray in my late 20’s with NO children around. Hair dye is a beautiful thing.

      Can you ship her/him to me for a “Trial Period” (like they offer on those infomercials)?

  43. BB says:

    Nancy, at least the Orioles are leading the Yankees right now (by one run). Hope it holds.

  44. BB says:

    Hi, LME. I know there is a sport section here. However, there is really no other discussion going on and we’re not talking about a particular game. Once were watching one together (Nancy and I) I’ll be glad to go over there. And I thought I saw where you didn’t intend for NME to start one anyway. But I’ll stop. See y’all tomorrow.

    • Nancy says:

      BB,
      We are not going anywhere. Lynn was a big sports fan and loved that some of us were big sports fans ourselves.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Okey dokey. And all I said was that when I made that joke about a sports blog that I was surprised she’d done it and worried I might have offended her. But since it’s there…
      But I apologize for saying anything.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I used it!! 🙂

        • lovemamaearth says:

          🙂 Lainey

          Boston02 cute falling asleep cartoon.

          NMD I picked Couples Therapy to watch. Last week was just the intro so tonight is really the first session. Good luck picking one.

      • Nancy says:

        lme,
        Why does it bother you? We’ve always talked about sports on this blog esp since
        Lynn was a big fan herself. You are just stiring the pot. Scroll on if you don’t want to add to the conversation.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          We could say the same about everything. Scroll past my comment if you don’t like it and you think it’s the way to handle something you don’t like. I hate sports. I think it’s helped degrade our education to the low level it is. People get seriously injured doing sports. Colleges piss away money on it.

          • Nancy says:

            Well I don’t know what to say except that there are many sports fans on this blog.

          • BB says:

            I’m so glad I logged back onto the blog, LME. I just read your comment to my very intelligent daughter who is now working on her graduate degree. She happened to be able to get a bachelor degree BECAUSE playing a sport helped pay her way through college. She didn’t piss away their money. She got her degree in four years, not five or six or more like some college kids do. A lot of those poor people you talk about in your political views happened to get a college degree BECAUSE they were able to play a sport. I don’t know how colleges piss away money on it because the investment is returned and more. The revenue generated by sports has saved many a university.

            • Exit4 says:

              Sports are a beautiful thing for kids to play. So many lessons to be learned. And yes, it is the path to success for many. I hope I didn’t cause any trouble (again) by bringing up sports…it was all in fun, I don’t get wound up and I took NO OFFENSE. At. All. to BB’s comment about Philadelphia fans. I live here, I know our rep….I behave very well in athletic venues. 🙂

              • lovemamaearth says:

                We can all disagree. All this because I reminded some that there’s a sports blog just like there’s a political blog. It’s my opinion–only given because someone asked why.

              • BB says:

                You actually didn’t start it. And I’m glad you didn’t take offense, Exit. I pull for the Eagles sometimes when they aren’t playing the Skins. I just like sports period. Kids learn discipline and sportsmanship through sports. It was something my late dad, my late brother and I shared throughout the years. And my family still gathers together to watch sports. Sports is a good escape from the not so great things in life sometimes.

                • lovemamaearth says:

                  Some seem to have taken even my first comment as a personal insult or attack. And then giving my opinion added to that. When I said sports, I was only thinking of football so I should amend it and say I don’t hate all sports. You want to go play or support it have at it.

                  Fields and gyms cost quite a bit of money. College didn’t used to cost so much. College used to give us better scientists and mathematicians than other countries. Now we’re having to import them. I think there’s a correlation there but if you don’t that’s all fine. I didn’t mean to cause a casino by either comment. There’s a lot that’s said here that I don’t agree with and don’t comment. This should have been one of them. And Nancy you might take your own advice sometimes and that’s coming out harsher than my heart is meaning but no other way to say it.

    Ya Know, I say I’m going to watch the thrilla that is jillzilla, but then I see the comments on her voice and I think to myself, omg, I forgot about that voice….Yes, the therapy sessions worked,
    so, I will rephrase and say, “I’m gonna see how long I last.”
    50 hours of labor…vs Jill’s voice….

  46. Maryla says:

    The NY reunion is on again, so i thought I’d go to Bravo and read Aviva’s blog. It is hilarious Her entire blog is (almost) a 7-paragraph apology. She is sorry. She has remorse. She apologies. Blah blah blah. But she sneaks in a snooty dressing-down. She can’t help herself.

    So paragraphs 1-5 are the Aviva Redemption tour. She doesn’t bash Ramona or Sonja. She says she has the problem of speaking before she thinks rather than thinking before she speaks (clever). Here in paragraph five she is apologizing for going on about her leg and her phobias. More apologies. Learned her lesson.

    Um… I think this is about enough introspection for Aviva. Look out.

    Alas, we get to paragraph six. Here it comes. “I would like to mention a point.” Ahhh, the Aviva apology tour couldn’t last forever. We now interrupt our Aviva forgiveness tour for this brief dressing-down of castmates.

    Think of these words in Aviva’s voice. That condescending, overindulged snooty voice—
    “I chose to discuss and portray my ex-husband on camera in the most positive light for the sake of our child. I think the better course would be to not discuss other peoples exes/divorces without invitation. The stakes are just too high where children are involved.

    Do you hear me Sonja? Do not talk about subjects I have brought up because it will give me a reason to become UNHINGED. I’ve stated it now. That topic is off limits. No talking about it. No talking. SONJA? SONJA! — I am speaking for The Children!! This is about The Children!!!

    Jeez. Sonja better get her ass in line. Aviva could be working up for a her second season rant: people who talk about Harry after Aviva has decreed this topic a no-talk zone.

    That Aviva is kinda funny, isn’t she?

  47. Couples Therapy, Duck Dynasty, or Fabio on Top Chef. Help me pick one.

  49. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Quoting WCW:At the end of the day, WWHL rating fall on Andy – IMO, bringing JZ on is an attempt for a ratings coup, a measure of JZ’s toxicity and an opportunity for Bravo’s website to get some traffic.

    This is exactly why I am NOT going to watch. Its my personal boycott. Im not giving that old hag any more of my time or wasting any more of my energy on her. I wouldnt give her the satisfaction of bragging about how she brought up bravo ratings or anything else she can spin and make about her. I DONT care what she has to say about anything. I wish she would crawl back under the rock she came out of.

    • BB says:

      I’m gonna do my part and not watch it or DVR it either.

    • chismosa says:

      Reposting this from above, for anyone concerned about watching Jill affecting any type of viewing #s.

      I’m not a Nielsen house ( I worked for a time at Nielsen in tv ratings dept). So when I know I would actually be counted by turning on the box, then NO I would never watch anything I didn’t want counting. Especially in the most coveted demo market.

      People don’t get that unless you have a box in your home, you DON’T COUNT in ratings. I get into this discussion all the time with people.

      • BB says:

        I’m still not watching on principle. Lol. I’m sure I’ll get all the info about it I want from here.

    Nashville was good. Loved the last tune sung as well. Wow. I’m not even a country fan!

    • BB says:

      Hopefully I can get that on demand. There’s just too much good stuff on TV, COC. It makes me wonder why I waste my time on the housewife shows. But I’m slowly weaning myself off of Bravo. Lol.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Me too, BB – trying to break away from Bravo. I have vowed not to watch OC; I didn’t enjoy it all last season. The Smelly Clam lady has overstayed. I think I am going to stay away from WWHL on Monday. I’m not even going to DVR it, I figure there will be snippets of it online afterward, if I’m really curious. Flexing my muscles, I’m going to be stronnnnnng!! 🙂 I started watching TAR and love it! Sons of Anarchy…love it!! Tried to watch Survivor today, but I’m too far behind to get into it now. I taped Nashville. I hope to enjoy that this weekend.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          I can’t believe OC is coming back.

        • BB says:

          I’ve gotten into Revenge, Survivor (after many years of being away), TAR, plus there is some shows going on where a guy pitches a ball and another guy tries to hit it with a bat that I’m watching. Shhhhhhh! I am going to watch RHOBH, but probably not Atlanta and def no more OC. No Miami for me either. I stopped watching Flipping Out too. Plus – THE WALKING DEAD is coming back! Can’t wait!

          • BB says:

            there are, not there is.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            Sigh. I’m really going to pay for that aren’t I. ((( BB ))) have a great night.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh my gosh, I LOVE THE WALKING DEAD. I’ve saved about 3 or 4 episodes that I cannot/will not ever erase if I can help it. The photography direction (is that what you call the person who sets up the shots?) is A++++++++ some of those shots are truly breathtaking and super creative. For a time, this past summer, you could enter an online contest on AMC.com to appear as a zombie. I entered so many times, my husband was amused by that and he laughed even harder when I told him that I stopped entering because I started to notice that all the zombies are super skinny….so, I’m out.

            Silly, I just posted on the sports page, I felt so alone. 🙂 My hubs was watching the yankees and so I was looking at it kinda sideways and whoah whoah whoah. so cool.

            You guys have been talking about Revenge and so I watched the premier but I think I really should have watched season one first because my mind kept wandering a lil bit. So I skipped ep 2.

            • BB says:

              Lainey if you really want to know what happened in season one of Revenge without watching it, go to the Real Housewife of Aiken website (it’s on the blog roll) and look at her preview of Revenge. It has links that will help. Then read her two revenge recaps. Even thought I watch it, her recaps help me. Lol.
              I missed the first whole season of the Walking Dead and I still got into it. I may buy it, just to watch it. My college softball playing daughter got me into it. Now I’m going to get my husband into it. Lol.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Oh yeahhhhh, buy it if you can. That premiere episode is everything (as Wendy Williams says)!!! This summer, they did a WD marathon and they showed the premiere in black and white, pretty darn cool.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Sorry, didn’t even acknowledge your advice for catching up on Revenge. THANKS!!! Will do!! i got too excited about The Walking Dead. LOL!!!

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            Walking Dead and American Horror Story – love em both and they make the RHofAnywhere seem less worth watching. I will watch BH but none of the others. I’m taking back my entertainment.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I was thinking about reading again during OC. I used to read so much more before Bravo.

              • BB says:

                Well, there are plenty of good suggestions on the Book Chat page.

              • looneylucy says:

                I’m with you on this one, Lainey. I’ve found that since I’ve been on the computer this last year and not reading, that I’ve lost so much personally in my command of language, spelling, punctuation….everything! I’ve always been a voracious reader, but since I’ve been on this damned computer reading blogs and not reading literature, I’ve become part of the dumbing down of America.

                I went to Barnes & Noble today (my #1 original Kindle took a dump), and bought the latest, greatest book on our book page, Gone Girl. I can’t wait to get started and perhaps get back to my old self. A “reader”.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  iNSPIRING, LooneyLucy!! Well, I’d better hurry up and get my own “gone girl “- waiting for payday actually… 10/15/12. Now Nancy has me wanting to get the Jaycee Dugard book.

                  • looneylucy says:

                    Just a heads up, Lainey. It’s not in paperback yet. B&N has a 30% off sticker. Just less than $20 at checkout. More than I wanted to spend, but I don’t spend any money for myself anyway, ever. Plus, since I haven’t read a damn book in over a year, I found every way in heck to justify the expense (knowing all bills are paid).

                    My husband retired a year ago, but went back to work to take care of loose-ends (of which there are many), and just got laid off. I worked part-time and got laid off. I don’t know how the heck young people can have the life we had.

            I can’t wait until I can take the time to watch all episodes of “Revenge” and “The Walking Dead” on Netflix.

            “American Horror Story” starts again next Wednesday. I LOVED the first season. “Scandal” is an excellent show. “Paranormal Witness” is a pretty good show too. I like scary and paranormal stuff, though. Other people might NOT.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I am a fan of horror. and Gore. Scary and paranormal stuff, too. I have to keep a check on my intake of horror because while I love it,…I get scared very easily. Like full on screaming with eyes popping and jumping up and down…LOL!! I get all jumpy and when my hubs was working I was alone a lot and it’s kinda scary out here. Crap I’m tensing up and not breathing as I type this…I’m scaring myself. hahahahha!! breathe in and out. Ok, I’m better.,

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                LOL, Lainey! I was pretty FEARLESS throughout my 20’s and 30’s. I’ve lived alone for YEARS, and I would ALWAYS watch horror movies, IN TOTAL DARKNESS BY MYSELF, and it didn’t even phase me then.

                I don’t know what happened when I hit 40, but now, for instance, I can watch “Paranormal Witness” WITH MY PARENTS AND BROTHER in the SAME DAMNED HOUSE….and I SCARE MYSELF TO DEATH!

    I will not watch WWHL with JZ. She has nothing to say of interest to me at this point.

    Regarding WWHL, I’m curious if anyone else finds the “woo-hooing” earsplitting? I don’t know if it’s my tv reception or what, but I mute the first section of the program until the majority of it is over and try to anticipate when the next woo-hoo from the audience is coming again to avoid it. It sounds like the audio from the audience is coming through a tin can.

    Does anyone else notice this? It drives me crazy.
